A different kind of wealth: mapping a baseline of African community foundations

A different kind of wealth: mapping a baseline of African community foundations

Jenny Hodgson and Barry Knight, October 2012, GFCF

The report focuses on a set of African institutions, including community foundations, community philanthropy institutions and local foundations operating in different parts of the African continent. The group is small but growing rapidly and has importance beyond its size. This report lays a baseline for the field and tells the beginning of an important story about a new generation of local philanthropic institutions which is emerging in Africa, some seeded with money from outside the continent, others entirely home‑grown – and all seeking to draw on local resources and tap into different forms of wealth, which include cash but also include other, less tangible, forms of social capital such as trust and credibility.
