Understanding Empowerment Endowments is a report by Intellidex, funded by Tshikululu Social Investments.

The report is based on a six-month research exercise into the charitable and community components of the 100 largest JSE companies’ empowerment deals implemented since 2002, when community schemes started to be included in BEE deals. It follows an earlier research report, The Empowerment Endowment, which undertook research into the scale of BEE foundations. The sources for this research include the published documents of the companies and the foundations, but also extensive interviews and other engagements with various company and foundation executives to obtain information.

Intellidex is solely responsible for the research and content of the report. Tshikululu’s funding was not contingent on any of the findings contained in this report.
