Founded in 2015, the Val de Vie Foundation is passionate about investing for sustainable impact by supporting numerous viable community projects. A faith-based initiative, its aim is to provide a better life to everyone in this beautiful Valley we call home.
To date, the Val de Vie Foundation has raised over R30 million that has been used to assist the most vulnerable in our communities. Through our implementation partner Valcare the Val de Vie Foundation supports over 40 organisations in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley.
