Our Mission

FWDK Mandela handsThe FW de Klerk Foundation promotes and preserves FW de Klerk's presidential heritage by supporting the causes for which he worked during his presidency. 

The Foundation:

  • supports and promotes the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the rule of law through the activities of the Centre for Constitutional Rights;
  • promotes unity in diversity by working for cordial inter-community relations and national unity through the activities of the Centre for Unity in Diversity;
  • supports charities that care for children with disabilities and disadvantaged children;
  • provides information on FW de Klerk's presidency and the factors that led to South Africa's transition to a non-racial constitutional democracy.

What must be done?

  • We must support the Constitution. South Africa’s future freedom, political stability and economic prosperity depend directly on our ability to maintain our carefully negotiated constitution.
  • We must nurture relationships between our communities. We must maintain inter-community harmony by promoting mutual respect for our diverse cultures; by combating racism from any quarter; and by working for national unity;
  • There must be ongoing communication between communities, business, labour and government to reach consensus on solution to national problems;
  • We must work together to address the problems of our society including inequality, education, unemployment, crime and corruption.
