About this grant

The project goal is to support domestic philanthropy infrastructure in South Africa. To this end, the grantee will continue to grow its network of philanthropic members in South Africa, influence and learn from a wide network of relationships, advance knowledge and improve philanthropic practice, develop and execute a communications and marketing strategy, and implement a funding strategy in order to meet its goals. Past support helped the Independent Philanthropy Association of South Africa to increase its membership, organize journal club meetings in philanthropic practice, and host a number of in-person, hybrid and virtual convenings on various thematic issues for philanthropic interest. The grantee was established in 2015 as a voluntary association and network to represent and promote the common interests, concerns and objectives of its members.
