Cape Wine Auction Trust & Mastercard Donate Widget Collaboration

Mastercard is partnering with The Cape Wine Auction Trust to change the future for children and youth in the South African winelands. Since 2014 The Cape Wine Auction has raised a staggering R125 million, and 100% of the funds raised support education in the winelands. 

The CWA Trust believes that education doesn’t only happen in the classroom. It funds partner organisations that address all aspects of the education journey, including eradicating barriers to learning like hunger, trauma, lack of transport and access to digital learning. 

Inspired by the wise adage that it takes a village to raise a child, the CWA Trust has created an ecosystem of the very best partner organisations, all working towards access to quality education for every young person in the winelands, and it is a model that is working.

Help us to change the future of children in the South African winelands by making a donation today:

An innovative Mastercard Donate Widget enables anyone to now be a part of this story of hope. The annual Cape Wine Auction is currently the main source of funding for the CWA Trust and will remain a highlight of the social calendar. 

Visit Winelands is inviting our wineries to house a Donate Widget, powered by Mastercard, on their websites, in e-newsletters or on social media to make contributing to the important work that the CWA Trust does accessible to all. 

Our invitation to our visitors and wine lovers is to be a part of the change by please donating to this worthy cause. No amount is too small and every donation will contribute to the powerful education partner ecosystem that has been set up by the CWA Trust. It’s a model of impact, a model that works.
