About this grant

The project goal is to build a network of knowledgeable and engaged private funders who are interested in grantmaking practices that strengthen the impact of their funding. The Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group, a project of the Tides Center, convenes funders, curates information, and connects funders supporting work that benefits communities in Africa. Past support enabled the grantee to organize forums for members to reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on their grantmaking, discuss emerging issues affecting communities in Africa, and produce material on the history of the network. In 2022 and 2023, the grantee will continue to document its 20 year contribution to build a dynamic learning community, and define the role of the network in response to a changing philanthropy landscape.
