About our Sponsorships
For more than 170 years 170 Old Mutual has contributed to social development in South Africa by investing in local initiatives. The knowledge and experience gained from partnering with community groups and organisations on some of South Africa’s leading events has resulted in wisdom, and wisdom shared inspires others to do great things.
The events we support are diverse and range from road running, music and wine, but the common denominator is that they help to build the rich cultural tapestry of our nation. Our sponsorships serve to stimulate growth and national cohesion, while strengthening Old Mutual’s brand and relationships with stakeholders.
Old Mutual’s corporate social investment initiatives are managed by the Old Mutual Foundation. The focus areas of the Old Mutual Foundation areas are Enterprise Development, Skills Capacity Building, Staff Volunteerism and Education.

- religious groups, political parties and related activities
