About this grant

The Southern African Community Grantmakers Leadership Forum is a membership organization of community grantmakers. It promotes social justice grantmaking as a vehicle for social change and brings together members in a knowledge-sharing partnership to enhance their growth and strengthen their ability to provide maximum benefit to the communities they serve. Previously, the grantee hosted learning events for its members, built strong partnerships with structures that have similar values, and increased its membership to include other experienced community grantmakers in the southern African region. Activities for the next two years will include continuing to convene face-to-face learning events and Webinars for members to deepen their knowledge, building cohesion among members in the southern African region, developing links with community grantmakers in other countries, and documenting its history and contribution to the community grantmaking field.
