FNB Joburg 10K believes in the rejuvenation of Johannesburg City, It therefore makes logical sense that we have partnered with the Joburg Heritage Foundation.
The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation, founded as the Parktown and Westcliff Heritage Trust in 1985, is a non-profit organisation dedicated the exploration, documentation, protection and restoration of Johannesburg’s heritage. The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation’s Programmes include:
They provide world-class heritage education outside of the classroom environment. In 2016, the Education Programme’s reach extended to 2,434 primary school children, 1,572 of whom attend non-fee paying schools and were either fully or partially sponsored by the Foundation.
The Foundation runs a tour programme exploring the diverse and rich history of Johannesburg and surrounds. Tours take place almost every weekend of the year, and are led by volunteer tour leaders that are experts in their fields.
The Foundation’s Research Centre contains a treasure trove of artefacts, including valuation rolls, heritage impact assessments and historic photos. Through a grant from the National Lottery, the Research Centre archives are in the process of being digitised.
Through the generous assistance of private donors, the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation has been able to restore a number of Johannesburg’s most important buildings, including St Alban’s Church in Ferreirastown, the Lutheran Church in Doornfontein, St Mary the Less in Jeppestown, James Mpanza House in Soweto and, most recently, The View in Parktown.
