The DG Murray Trust is a funder of public benefit organisations. Our ultimate goal is to create an ethical and enabling environment where human needs and aspirations are met; and every person is given the proper opportunity to fulfil his or her potential, for both personal benefit and for that of the wider community.
By investing in South Africa’s potential we aim to: Create opportunity for personal growth and development that will encourage people to achieve their potential. Help reduce the gradients that people face in trying to seize those opportunities. Affirm the value and dignity of those who feel most marginalised and devalued by society.
DGMT is a South African foundation built on endowments from Douglas George Murray and his wife, Eleanor. Murray was the son of, and successor to John Murray, the founder of the Cape-based construction company, Murray and Stewart which was established in 1902. This company merged in 1967 with Roberts Construction to become Murray & Roberts, with the parent Trusts as the main shareholders. In 1979, the Trusts combined to form the DG Murray Trust, which over the years has diversified its investments. It currently distributes about R110 million per year.
