About Us

Who are we?


The Balwin Foundation NPC was established in 2016 for the specific purpose of providing scholarships, bursaries, awards and loans for study, research and teaching.  The Balwin Foundation promotes the development of knowledge and skills within the construction, property, engineering and associated disciplines.


The Foundation adds value to Balwin’s community social responsibility objectives whilst at the same time addressing Transformation Guidelines and implementing Employment Equity initiatives.


The Balwin Foundation is committed to 'building skills and creating growth' in the local communities in which we operate to contribute to the creation of a sustainable, equitable and prosperous society that we as South Africans can all be proud of.


We do this through developing skills & educating, enhancing and uplifting the lives of the communities in which we operate in order to make a sustainable social impact.
