At the beginning of the year, Rene joined our team as our Fundraising Consultant to assist the Foundation with its fundraising activities.

A little bit about Rene.

She is a fantastic Flight attendant by profession who is passionate about giving.

Her favourite colours are purple & lilac, she enjoys being tucked away with a good book and lives by Flora Edwards words, “In helping others we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us”

Rene has done a fantastic job tackling to-do lists brained stormed over the last couple of years and with the responses and knowledge we are receiving we feel that our big hairy audacious fundraising goals are taking firmer shape.

With that said we have some exciting news to share with you! Woolworths has provisionally approved us as a beneficiary on their MySchool, MyVillage, MyPlanet programme (SUPER YAY!) This will allow us to source donations from purchases made at Woolies and their partner stores with just the swipe of a supporter’s woolies/ MySchool, MyVillage, MyPlanet card.

To finalize our place on the programme we need 50 signed supporter application forms and that is where we would like your help.

Kindly fill out the electronic form (download form) and submit it back to us as soon as you can and as a cherry on top circulate the supporter form to as many friends and family to help us reach the 50 + signatures by the 24th of June 2022.

Already a MySchool, MyVillage, MyPlanet card holder?

Great! on the form you can indicate that The Gryphon Foundation NPC, based in the Gauteng Region should be added as one of your beneficiaries.

You and your network can submit your completed forms to, they can also contact using that email for any question they have.

Thank you again for your continuous support, have a great week ????
