Who we are

We are a membership Network that brings together Trusts and Foundations in the East Africa region with the aim of promoting philanthropy. Membership is drawn from Family Trusts, Community Foundations, Corporate Foundations and other types of Grantmaking and non-grantmaking organizations interested in promoting local philanthropy in East Africa.
