The Cape Tercentenary Foundation:

The Cape Tercentenary Foundation was founded in 1950 by Edward and Harry Molteno, pioneers of the Cape fruit industry. They were extremely well read, appreciated and enjoyed music and the theatre, and were devoted to the natural environment. They wished to establish "a fund for the cultural development of Cape Town" and their first donation of 2500 was made to the Cape Town Orchestra, the South African Public Library and the Chamber Music Society.

The Cape Tercentenary Foundation came into being with the following mission in mind: to preserve, promote and encourage literature, the visual and performing arts, and the natural and cultural environment in the Western, Eastern and Northern Cape Provinces.
