About this grant

The Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group, a project of the Tides Center, is a network of diverse groups and individuals funding efforts that benefit communities in Africa. Its activities help new and experienced funders build strong professional relationships and deepen their knowledge of current developments in Africa to leverage philanthropy to Africa. Past support enabled the Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group to continue bringing together funders working in Africa to learn about developments in Africa, share information on their work, and inform their grantmaking practices and produce a report in collaboration with the Foundation Center on philanthropic giving to Africa from foundations based in the United States. This grant will support the Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group to continue convening funders interested in Africa, providing information to members on funding to Africa, and connecting philanthropy support organizations whose work benefits African communities.
