Who we are:

Founded in 1996, the Kovsie Alumni Trust (KAT) is a legally independent body that recruits donors from the ranks of former Kovsies to provide bursaries and opportunities for student education and training.

Since its founding, thousands of KAT donors have contributed to the financial support of talented students and enabled them to obtain qualifications from the University of the Free State (UFS) despite the financial hardships, disabilities, or other obstacles they faced.

The trust also offers sports bursaries to promising prospective students and plays a significant role in the yearly Matriculant of the Year competition aimed at recruiting the best academic leaders to the UFS. This prestigious national competition lends status to the UFS as an institution of academic preference.

Objectives:

The Kovsie Alumni Trust

  • raises money and property in natura through fundraising activities to realise the educational, training, and research goals of the university;
  • is an educational fund in accordance with Section 18A of the Income Tax Act, no 58 of 1962. Donations to the trust are tax-deductible in terms of South African tax legislation;
  • accepts and appropriates donations, undertakings, contributions, bequests, and similar patronage to advance the goals of the UFS, subject to rules and regulations.
