About this grant

The project goal is to develop community foundations in Uganda. Over the past year, CivSource Africa conducted research in two districts to explore the development of community foundations. The grantee identified five initiative groups, produced learning materials and provided capacity development support to the groups. Over the next two years, the grantee will identify initiative groups in additional districts, provide support and tools to the groups, create a learning community and platforms, continue to popularize the community foundation concept and pilot local resource mobilization activities. Based in Kampala, CivSource Africa was established in 2017 to refine the practice and footprint of philanthropy in Uganda and the rest of Africa.
