Conference Announcements (4)
TrustAfrica, the Working Group of Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace (PSJP) and the African Grantmakers Network, in collaboration with the Global Fund for Community Foundations and the Arab Foundations Forum are pleased to share three discussion papers that were developed specifically for the convening "Developing a Collective Framework and Agenda to Advance Social Justice Philanthropy in Africa and the Arab Region" which took place right before the bi-annual African Grantmakers Network meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa in October-November, 2012. These working papers are part of a broader set of upcoming reflections on social justice philanthropy in Africa.
More than 600 delegates from 61 countries attended the 8th international conference of the International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR), held July 9–12, 2008, in Barcelona. TrustAfrica was on hand to host a special workshop on the State of Philanthropy in Africa. Roughly a dozen contributors to our forthcoming publication on the sector discussed the manuscript and shared their research findings with a wide set of experts attending the biennial conference.
