Welcome to AGN Assembly


The African Grantmakers Network (AGN) invites you to the Third Biennial Assembly to be held in Arusha, Tanzania on 1st -3rd July, 2015 and will be hosted by the African Women's Development Fund (AWDF) and the Foundation for Civil Society (FCS). It will bring together leaders in philanthropy to discuss actions that will contribute to and sustain the growth of African economies through philanthropy development.

Themed "Philanthropy in Africa 2015 – People, Policy and Practice" the action oriented sessions will include conversations on unused tax reserves, the impact of governance on philanthropy, and will seek to unearth good practice through knowledge building, research, experience sharing and skills building in each of these critical areas. The program will foreground contributions to philanthropy in Africa by critical constituencies such as women, youth and other marginalised groups. This exciting action focused program will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, academics, the media and other key actors to the table in Arusha.
