Report of African Philanthropy Symposium

Report of African Philanthropy Symposium 

May 2008, GFCF

The Global Fund for Community Foundations in conjunction with Trust Africa convened a symposium in Naivasha, Kenya, in May 2008, with two purposes. The main purpose was to help the Global Fund develop its framework, underpinning philosophy, and future strategies for funding the development of community foundations and philanthropy in Africa. The secondary purpose was to make a contribution to the debate about the nature of African philanthropy, to understand emerging trends in different regions, and to clarify
some of the key issues that need to be addressed in supporting the varied ways in which traditional forms of giving are linking with ‘new’ forms of organized philanthropy. This is the report of that meeting.
