The GFCF is looking for a consultant to support the next phase of its development as an essential piece of the infrastructure for the global community philanthropy field.
Over the last six years, the GFCF has evolved from a pilot project to a fully-fledged independent legal entity, registered in the UK and South Africa and based in Johannesburg. As a small “hub” institution serving the needs of the fast-growing and still evolving field of global community philanthropy, it has also been through an important process of learning and experimentation around its grantmaking, field-building and knowledge management strategies.
As the board and management look ahead to the GFCF's future it will be essential to reflect on the institution’s journey as a new institution, and the learning that has been derived in order to establish a clear direction in terms of its long-term strategy and niche.
