About this grant

The Southern African Community Grantmakers Leadership Forum was established in 2010 to connect leaders of community grantmaking organizations in the southern Africa region. It brings together established and emerging leaders to develop their knowledge and expertise and strengthen their institutions and the field. Past grants enabled the grantee to nurture emerging leaders and provide them with the necessary support to take up new roles and responsibilities as leaders in their organizations. This grant will support the network in continuing to bring together members in a learning and sharing platform, conduct research on community philanthropy in the region, produce learning material and other publications to build a knowledge repository for the network and the field, and participate in regional and international events to profile the network and learn from the field globally.
