The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation exists to identify, support and develop talented young Southern Africans whom have the potential to become entrepreneurial leaders and make a valuable difference to the social and economic fabric of South Africa.  Developing high-impact leaders is, however, only the means to an end: the ultimate purpose of the Foundation is to make a real and enduring difference not only to the lives of those that they have invested in, but also to the country and the region at large. This is the core purpose and the vision of the Foundation: to make a long-term positive impact that liberates the possibility of a great South Africa. The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation is the social responsibility initiative of Allan Gray Limited and the Orbis Groups in South Africa.  It is funded annually by a donation of a minimum of 7% of the taxed profits of the Allan Gray Limited and Orbis Group, which has committed to making this donation to the Foundation in perpetuity.  As profits may fluctuate, this commitment is backed up by a capital endowment of over R1 billion donated by Mr. Allan WB Gray, the founder of Allan Gray Limited and Orbis Groups.
