The African Grantmakers Network invites the public to nominate individuals and organizations for the 2014 African Philanthropy Awards at the AGN Assembly in Accra, Ghana in November 2014.
Every two years the AGN holds its Assembly Conference culminating in the African Philanthropy Awards ceremony. This prestigious non-monetary award recognizes African philanthropic initiatives that are innovative and fresh, go beyond traditional models of giving, and offer a sign of the future of African philanthropy. The awards showcase these innovations and celebrate them as new contributions by individuals and organizations to Africa’s growth and development.
The 2012 inaugural African Philanthropy Award went to Marwa el Daly for her work with the Maadi Community Foundation in Egypt.
