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 a better impact in the development of public policies. The Africa Philanthropy Network is a continent-wide network of grantmakers and other philanthropic institutions, set up to promote learning and networking. Past support enabled the network to participate in international events to advance African Philanthropy, strengthen its membership, and set up internal systems. This grant will enable the grantee to host its biennial conference that brings together all members across the continent. It will also strengthen connections with similar organizations in the continent, host learning events for members, and build the brand of the network.
