Sub-Saharan Africa has a wide array of PSAs working in different thematic and geographical areas. These include Networks and membership organizations; Grantmakers and funders; Media; Government and intergovernmental authorities; professional support organizations; academia and research; Private Banks; and Not-for-Profit promoting giving.
APN in collaboration with its members and partners in the philanthropy field is working towards establishing a mapping of Philanthropy Support in Sub-Saharan Africa. The mapping exercise is a work in progress as many actors need to be incorporated into the map as the emerging and disappearing ones.
During 2022, APN in collaboration with its members and Partners with the support from WINGS and Mott Foundation implemented the mapping of PSAs in sub–Saharan Africa. They completed a map of about 570 Actors. The mapping has been coded into Digital Visualization Map for ease of access and broader reach.
