About this grant
The Southern African Community Grantmakers Leadership Forum is a membership organization established in 2010 to support the development of community grantmakers in the southern Africa region. It brings together leaders of community grantmaking organizations in a knowledge-sharing partnership to strengthen their ability to provide maximum benefit to the communities they serve. Previously, the grantee hosted peer learning events for members, participated in regional learning events, and reorganized its institutional structure to improve effectiveness. This grant support will allow the grantee to continue bringing together leaders of community grantmaking organizations to learn from each other, support the development of young people working in the field of philanthropy, build stronger linkages with continental and other regional networks, and provide information and material that is useful to building the community grantmaking field in southern Africa.
