Liberia Philanthropy Secretariat
The Philanthropy Secretariat was conceived as a mechanism to strengthen philanthropist-supported contributions in Liberia. Through generous support from funders including the NoVo Foundation, Humanity United, the Daphne Foundation and the McCall MacBain Foundation, the Government of Liberia (GoL) launched the Secretariat in April 2009. The Secretariat has started as a three year pilot program based in the Office of the President, headed by the Minister of State without Portfolio, Hon. Natty B. Davis with four full-time staff. The Secretariat is the first office of its kind at the national level in the world.
