About this grant

The Southern Africa Trust supports civil society organizations in southern Africa to participate effectively and with credibility in policy dialogues so that the voices of the poor can have better impact in the development of public policies. The African Grantmakers Network is a continentwide network of African grantmaking organizations established to facilitate networking and learning among these institutions. Past Mott support contributed to the establishment of the network’s secretariat, grantmaker convenings, research, and membership development. This grant will support the African Grantmakers Network to enhance thought leadership on African philanthropy, contribute to building resilient African philanthropic institutions by setting standards for good governance and accountability, convene country- and regional-level peer learning events, and build a repository of knowledge on African philanthropy.
