Thank you to everyone who rose to the challenge and donated to the 2019 / 2020 FMF R1million Challenge. Thank you to our incredible sponsor who made the Challenge possible. The result of your generosity is that we have reached the R1,5 Million target!

We are deeply grateful for your fantastic support and are conscious of the responsibility your generosity carries. Our mission is clear. We will work vigorously and tirelessly for free markets, economic freedom and the rule of law in South Africa. It is only with your support that we can continue to strive for a better tomorrow for all South Africans.

If you were not able to donate to this year’s challenge but wish to support the Free Market Foundation, please bear in mind that you still have until the end of February to make a tax-deductible donation for the current tax year.
