We strategically deploy our entrusted resources through well-chosen partnerships  for the maximum expansion of God’s Kingdom.

OUR APPROACH

The Mergon Foundation is a not-for-profit trust fund that was established in 1980, following a commitment made by Francois van Niekerk to God as he turned to Him for a lifeline in business.

Our vision is to see God’s Kingdom expand, to see the unreached come to faith in Jesus Christ, to see people discipled into living relationships with God and assimilated into faith communities. To this purpose we allocate financial and human capital to ministry partners across Africa and the Middle East, enabling them to greater multiply their Kingdom impact. We link partners into our network and provide equipping opportunities, encourage them and pray for them. Through their efforts, we see the true redemptive power of the gospel displayed in a life transformed, a community uplifted, a future intact and an assurance grounded in the unchanging goodness of God.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19-20

OUR REGIONAL
PARTNERSHIPS

The Mergon Foundation has regional strategies, supporting ministries across South Africa, sub-Saharan African and North-Africa/Middle East.  We research, evaluate and discern where and how God is leading us to deploy Mergon’s resources for the greatest Kingdom impact.
