How to become a Patron


You browsing through this document shows your interest in making a difference in the educational and skills levels of South Africa Citizens, especially our leaders of tomorrow – our youth.

The Graham & Rhona Beck Skills Centre could be your tool to achieve just that. As the Skills Centre acts as a catalyst for change, facilitating employability and sustainable growth, by means of community transformation and skills development in the Cape Winelands area, some of our core priorities are to provide quality infrastructure for education and skills training, facilitate scarce and critical training and development programmes through the utilisation of funding opportunities for the delivery of cost effective programmes to the mainly previously disadvantaged, unemployed youths in our community.

You can assist us to ensure that activities lead to growth and development of human resources in the geographic area. In exchange for a minimum annual donation of R100 000, our Patrons receive the following benefits:  

- Invitations to special events at the Graham & Rhona Beck Skills Centre  

- Your name/company name will appear under the list of Patrons on our website, unless otherwise requested, as well as logo display on the Auditorium where our patrons are visible placed as   “Patrons of the Skills Centre”.  

- You/ your company will be added to the mailing list.
