2017 African Philanthropy Forum

African Philanthropy in a Changing Global Context

Recent global events have had disruptive influences on the way we conduct business, live and interact in the world.  In this changing global context, African philanthropists recognize the urgent need to reduce the Continent's reliance on foreign aid and grants, unlock the potential of cross border investments and change the narrative around giving in Africa. The 2017 African Philanthropy Forum explored the role of philanthropists in shaping the Continent's future through their influence and role as catalysts, showcasing strategies for promoting collaborations, lessons learned and opportunities for deepening and strengthening philanthropy on the Continent.
