APN Membership

APN brings together grantmakers, community foundations, private foundations, academia, CSOs, individuals who give and other philanthropists in the continent and the diaspora – whose capital, influence, knowledge, and moral authority -have the power to address the structural and systematic causes of injustice and inequality.

APN members continue to work with governments, regional development bodies such as SADC and the African Union (AU), academia, research institutions, and international NGOs (INGOs) to benchmark and improve the national, regional, and continental frameworks enabling domestic philanthropy.  Philanthropy – is the act of giving and is an act of power.

Together, we have the collective power to influence national states and societal actors towards supporting African traditions of philanthropy and enable domestic philanthropic giving as a driver for change and Africa’s sustainable development.
