Africa Grantmakers' Affinity Group *AGAG)
AGAG is a project of the Tides Center. We are a membership network of grantmakers working to promote robust, effective and responsive philanthropy to benefit African communities. AGAG members are organizations that have a formal mechanism for grantmaking and come together to learn and share good practices in leveraging philanthropy and increase its impact in stimulating positive social change. AGAG is not a funding organization and we do not assist organizations in identifying funding.
Our main activities are:
• convening funders through our annual conference and other in-person and virtual meetings designed to
help new and experienced funders form professional relationships, share effective practices, and deepen their knowledge about current events in Africa and in philanthropy
• curating and disseminating relevant information about the people and organizations working to leverage philanthropy and increase its positive impact.
• connecting people and ideas to promote partnerships and collaborations among the broad spectrum of grantmakers working to promote philanthropy to benefit African communities.
