Three Pillars of Nation Transformation

The Platform to succeed

The Environment to succeed

The Ability to succeed

Three Pillars of The Domino Foundation

The Platform to succeed: Aiding in the relief of people’s and communities’ needs.

The Ability to succeed: Empowering people for a better future.

The Environment to succeed: Contending for justice, people and communities.

As a brand, Domino has three distinct but inextricably linked incarnations:
The Domino Foundation, The Domino Trust and Domino Business.

The Domino Foundation runs focused interventions to holistically support and empower communities to be active participants in our society. We believe that by addressing three key pillars, effective social change can be achieved.

1. Social Charity – to help those in need.
2. Social Justice – to give orphaned children and vulnerable people an equal and fair chance in life.
3. Social Entrepreneurship – using economic development to empower a community.

WHO: The Domino Trust seeks to build a capital base to ensure the long-term sustainability of the community development work of The Domino Foundation, in order to reduce the reliance on donor funding. The sole beneficiary of The Domino Trust is The Domino Foundation.

HOW: The Domino Trust has been established in order:
– to manage capital funds
– to create opportunities for parties to contribute to the future of The Domino Foundation.

Domino Business is a For-Profit group of companies whose shares are 100% owned by The Domino Trust. This means that the beneficiaries of The Domino Foundation, are effectively the shareholders of Domino Business. An assessment is done once a year of the demographics of these beneficiaries, thereby giving Domino Business a significant advantage in the marketplace in terms of the latest B-BBEE Codes, as the ownership is black, female and from a vulnerable group.
