FMF NEWSLETTER 9 January 2020   

Dear friend of the FMF,

Rise to the challenge!

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 FMF R1Million Challenge is now in full swing.

The R1Million Challenge is our annual fundraising initiative now in its 6th year.
Any donation you make to the FMF before 18 January 2020 will have 50% added by our sponsor.
The FMF is the oldest free market think-tank in South Africa, and one of the oldest in the world.
We are a non-profit organisation and are entirely reliant for our operational funding on donations by private individuals and organisations such as yourselves.
No amount is too small to have the 50% added.

Please donate now

Thank you to our generous sponsor for making the 2019/2020 FMF R1 Million Challenge possible.
We ask that our members and friends rise to the challenge with support for the Free Market Foundation.
It is only with your support  that we may continue to strive for a better tomorrow for all South Africans.

ARTICLE of the week

Employment is created by entrepreneurs, those individuals who have a dream and are willing to take the risk. That has been the case for at least 5,000 years. To understand the mind of the entrepreneur we need to place ability in the context of the management process, because successful entrepreneurs invariably have good management teams working with them.
