May 2019 Annual African Philanthropy Conference Proceedings

African Philanthropy

This century belongs to the African philanthropists, whose capital, influence, local knowledge, and moral authority have the power to address pressing challenges in the continent. Philanthropy, in all of its various forms, engages stakeholders from the private, public, non-profit, and religious sectors. It nimbly cuts across geographies, social classes, and demographic groups in a way that governments and businesses often cannot. The impetus for giving is clear: donors identify rampant need in their communities and, for various religious, social, moral, and cultural reasons, choose to give freely of their resources.

 

But what is the impact of their giving? How can they give effectively and in innovative ways? What role does academia play in facilitating effective giving? Finally, what are the strategies that need to be crafted to build an infrastructure for transformative change in Africa through philanthropy? All of this was discussed during the first ever philanthropy conference in Africa.
