History of the Rambam Charitable Trust.
In 1995, with a mere R2 500 donated by five individuals, the RAMBAM CHARITABLE TRUST was formed. It’s aim is to assist members of the South African Jewish Community who require financial assistance. This is provided in the form of interest free loans. To date the RAMBAM has proudly assisted more than 2000 applicants with over R54,5 million including loans to PBO’s.
The RAMBAM interest free loan is designed to provide assistance with affordability and convenience in mind.
We make sure that a loan from the RAMBAM will be used to assist and uplift and NOT to become a burden. To receive an interest free loan there are certain requirements, which are far less stringent than those required by the banks. Funds can easily be available within a few days.
The Trust is administered by trustees comprising of dedicated businessmen and professionals, each assigned with their specific responsibilities. We attach huge value to each and every Trustee’s contribution to our three fundamental pillars – UNITY, COMMUNITY AND RESPONSIBILITY.
We are committed to ensuring, in time of financial need, members of the Jewish community are able to turn to us. We embrace the principles of INTEGRITY, COMPASSION AND EMPATHY.
