About us

Founded in 2015, the Val de Vie Foundation is passionate about investing for sustainable impact. The Val de Vie Foundation focuses on education, community needs and creating entrepreneurs and aim to provide a better life for everyone in this beautiful Valley we call home. The Val de Vie Development company and residents of Val de Vie Estate are deeply engaged in our neighbouring communities and recognise that the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley is life-giving to all, not only to the few that are fortunate enough to live on the estate.

“The traditional charity funding model needs transformation. In order to be sustainable, charities need long-term annuity income streams to reinvest in local communities. The Val de Vie model is to offer market related investments to the wealthy and thereby bring the wealthy and the less privileged together in one community where the one thrives with the other. The Val de Vie Foundation model will continue to support the needy in the community and offer real employment for those equipped with the skills to support the Estate.” – Founder, Martin Venter
