About us

The American Friends of Mandela Rhodes Foundation (AFMRF) supports the Mandela Rhodes Foundation (located in Cape Town, South Africa) through the King Baudouin Foundation United States.

Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, AFMRF has now endowed ten Mandela Rhodes Scholarships in perpetuity through over $8 million in grants to the Mandela Rhodes Foundation.

All donations to the Mandel Rhodes Foundation (MRF) via the King Baudouin Foundation United States are fully tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
