Community work

The More Community Trust is a non-profit organisation whose core objective is to provide meaningful support to the local communities in which we operate. Projects undertaken are all self-sustainable, as our belief is that by enriching communities to contribute their own effort and skill, projects are kept alive into the future.

Each member of the community has a role to play, and in so doing inspires a secured pride, responsibility, accountability and happiness in community members. Leadership of the More Community Trust include representatives from the community, an independent financial adviser and a More family representative.

The More family and their associated companies cover the administrative costs of the Trust so that only 7.5% of the donors’ funds are used for this purpose. This therefore ensures that 92.5% of all donations received land up in the hands of the identified and approved beneficiary projects.

More Quarters and Cape Cadogan support a Cape Town NGO called “Matchbox” who is involved in the upliftment of township crèche and nursery facilities.  The current Matchbox project is at the Injongo crèche, situated in the township of Mfuleni just outside Cape Town. Click here for tour information.

Pack for a Purpose

More Quarters and Cape Cadogan have also teamed up with the Pack for a Purpose initiative. This organisation facilitates a direct bridge between our small piece of Africa, and the rest of the world. They do this by setting up wish lists in coordination with each of the affiliated properties and the school or crèche they are responsible for. Pack for a Purpose allows travellers the opportunity to donate and contribute to these care centres by looking at the wish list for the corresponding property that they are travelling to and bringing along any donations they can. This organisation ensures that each of the care centres has enough food, stationery, clothes, toys and much more.
