Global interest in the field of philanthropy and social investment in Africa and continents outside of Euro-America is growing significantly. Recent years have seen a considerable increase in research and writings related to these topics. Despite this, the study of these fields is only just starting with very little formal academic research, teaching and publications available in Africa. In response to this lack of dedicated, formal academic focus, Wits Business School and the Southern Africa Trust introduced the Centre on African Philanthropy and Social Investment.

The Centre aims to support the growth of this field by filling the current gaps in teaching, research and publication. It serves as a source of knowledge, a network of partnerships, and a motivation for innovation, community engagement and increased sense of citizenship and social responsibility throughout the African continent and beyond. From the outset, this initiative took on a wider pan-African outlook – seeking to understand philanthropic behaviour in different contexts and histories.
