The Cape Town Heritage Trust is an independent, private-sector, non-profit organisation
concerned with the conservation and enhancement of the man-made and natural environment
and hence with the socio-economic advancement of the city and its people.

The Trust was established in 1987 by the Cape Town City Council with the backing of the Cape Provincial Administration. A number of buildings in Shortmarket and Hout Streets, originally acquired for road-widening purposes, were donated to the Trust. These properties were sold subject to conditions as to their restoration and conservation. The Trust is actively engaged in a partnership scheme with the Council and individual property owners for the upgrading of these streets and has already ensured the improvement of certain sections.

The Cape Town Heritage Trust is currently busy with a project that marks the Original Shoreline; a project that tells the story of the many and diverse
people who contributed to making history and forming the city as we know it today.
Your contribution will not only help us mark the route along the streets and squares of Cape Town, but also enable the voices of our past to be heard as
they tell us about how the city has changed and grown over the past 350 years.
All donations are tax deductible and a tax certificate will be issued upon request for all donations received.
