The Rialto Project is a registered non-profit company with the purpose of bridging the education divide in South Africa, and in so doing making a difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities.

Founded in 2019 by Capital Land Asset Management (Capital Land) and Futuregrowth Asset Management (Futuregrowth), the Rialto Project provides and manages educational bursaries to leading schools across South Africa for deserving children.

The Rialto Bridge spans the Grand Canal in the city of Venice. As one of the most iconic historical bridges in the world, it provides a representative symbol of the ideals and objectives of our programme.

The Rialto Project aims to bridge the education divide of historical disadvantage in South Africa, giving deserving children from compromised backgrounds access to world-class education, opportunities and support through a structured bursary programme. In doing so, we aim to change the lives of the individuals, their families and communities.

The Rialto Project currently supports six high-school students in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape, as well as one matriculant who is undergoing an internship at Maersk Shipping in Cape Town.

The Rialto Project is presently funded by four corporate sponsors who have collectively committed more than R2 million to the programme.

The Rialto Project is managed by the team at Capital Land in Cape Town, South Africa under the guidance of a board of directors and advisory committee. The day-to-day administration and management of the Rialto Project is undertaken by Capital Land at no cost to the programme – all funds donated are used exclusively for the benefit of the recipients.

The Rialto Project is a registered non-profit company in South Africa with the registration number 2019/421743/08. All contributions to the programme qualify for socio-economic development points towards B-BBEE certification. Section 18(A) approval is currently in progress.
