Opportunity: Director, African Philanthropy Forum

The Global Philanthropy Forum is seeking to recruit a Director for its newest endeavor, the African Philanthropy Forum—a network of African philanthropists and social investors committed to inclusive and sustainable economic development throughout the African continent.

About Global Philanthropy Forum (GPF): The Global Philanthropy Forum is a project of the World Affairs Council, and aims to build a community of donors and social investors committed to international causes, and to inform, enable and enhance the strategic nature of their work. Through an annual conference, special learning opportunities, and match-making among donors, the GPF connects donors to issues; to effective strategies; to potential co-funding partners; and to emblematic agents of change from around the world. By building, and continually refreshing a lasting learning community, the GPF seeks to expand the number of philanthropists who will be strategic in pursuit of international causes.

About the African Philanthropy Forum (APF): The goal of the APF is to build a learning community of African philanthropists and social investors committed to inclusive and sustainable economic development within the African continent; to embed that community into the global network that is the GPF; and through educational programs and match-making services, to inform, enable, enhance and support the impact of their philanthropy. While the APF will remain a project of the GPF during its three-year start-up phase, it is anticipated that the APF may be spun off as a free-standing organization, affiliated with the GPF.
