Greeff Bank Account
DIE GREEFF FAMILIE REKENING
The first account we opened for the Greeff Family has proved to be too expensive in bank charges, so we have closed it and opened an account where we have no bank charges. The details of the new account are:
Account Name: Greeff Family Account
Capitec Bank, Cape Town, Darling Branch
Signatories: Prof C.J.B. (Caspar) Greeff and Michele Murry (nee Greeff).
This account has closed, and is no longer active:
We thank the outgoing treasurers, Willex Greeff and Melinda van Schalkwyk, and congratulate them on the work they have done.
This bank account was opened so that anyone can contribute to projects for the benefit of the Greeff clan. The account is new, so the rules will change as we go along. For the time being contributions can be made for specific projects, but if the funds needed for any particular project are oversubscribed, then the surplus may be used for any other project or transferred to capital. Any money that goes into the Capital account is never spent, but it may be invested to earn income. Ten per cent of all money paid into this account may be retained, at the discretion of the treasurers, for (past, present or future) Administration costs.
An active fundraising drive is currently raising funds for Natanja Greeff who has started to do a Masters Degree at Cape Town University. She is doing a research degree on the family Greeff and how the family formed new branches on Greeff family farms. (See: http://www.greeff.info/tng01/Nuusblad7-Mrt2008.php)
One letter deserves special mention and special thanks in this regard:

Contribution Code: Study + donor name
2. Administration Costs. Bank charges. The costs of the software that drives the web site and the costs of the web hosting have thus far been met by Francois Greeff, out of personal funds. Donations will ensure that the Greeff Family web page survives after the death of Francois Greeff, who has cancer.
Contribution Code: Admin + donor name
3. Capital Account. This is probably the most important account of all because the long term success and survival of the Greeff Family Web Page depends on a regular flow of funds from capital invested. It may be a good idea to make a bequest to this fund in your will.
Contribution Code: Capital + donor name
1. Restoration of Painting: The only painting of Hendrik Adriaan Greeff, that exists is over 100 years old and it needed restoration urgently. Jan Middeljans was appointed to restore the painting. The restoration cost R2 400,00.

payment to the Greeff Family Bank Account it can be done via Paypal.
The procedure is fairly simple:
