The tree that inspired our Foundation

For over a hundred million years, the Yellowwood tree has pushed its majestic crown to the African skies, a life-sustaining force for the plants, animals and people that encounter it. In fact, this tree is so important that it was declared an emblem of our nation: the South African national tree.

Today, this imposing giant of the forest is the inspiration for the Yellowwood Crown Foundation.

We see education as the nurturing soil and rain that will allow talented young minds to grow. In catalysing growth and greatness in the young people that cross our path, we see them becoming the Yellowwood trees of their communities.

Like the lofty crown of our namesake, we envision a future in which the youth of South Africa will rise to stand tall and proud. In turn, they too will plant trees under whose shade they do not expect to sit.


"It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade." Mark 4:31–32 NIV
