The GivingTuesday Africa Hub’s mission is to inspire and manifest generosity across the African continent. We are driven by our core values of collective action, collaboration, generosity, co-creation, inclusivity, and innovation.
At GivingTuesday Africa Hub, we believe that lasting change can only be achieved through the power of collective action. We foster partnerships and bring together diverse voices and perspectives to create meaningful impact. Our approach is rooted in co-creation, ensuring shared ownership and acknowledging the collective impact we can make together.
Inclusivity is at the heart of our work. We strive to ensure that our initiatives are inclusive, representative, and respectful of the rich diversity of African communities. We embrace innovation, constantly seeking new ways to improve our approaches and maximize our impact.
Our vision is to see a future where generosity, collective action, and co-creation are the driving forces behind African philanthropy. By celebrating and amplifying African philanthropy, we inspire positive social impact and transform communities across the continent.
A vibrant community of philanthropic and civil society stakeholders united by a common goal—to advance African philanthropy and strengthen civil society. We believe that understanding, celebrating, and inspiring African philanthropy is the key to creating a more prosperous and equitable continent.
In Africa, generosity runs deep, woven into the very fabric of our diverse cultures and traditions. However, much of this generosity remains untapped and underutilized as a resource for civic work. That’s why the Generosity Circle has been established—to unlock the potential of African generosity and leverage it for the greater good.

Because we recognize that while research and data initiatives have been carried out by various organizations across the continent, there is a need for coordination and collaboration to maximize their impact. We aim to create a space for peer learning, cross-regional analysis, and shared methodologies that will enable a better understanding and comparison of generosity data in Africa.
Collaboration is at the heart of the Generosity Circle. By working together with strategic partners and thought leaders, we will co-convene for peer learning, co-resource through joint fundraising efforts, and co-design methodologies to develop actionable insights. Our shared research priorities will drive data-driven decision-making, helping us support nonprofits, grassroots organizations, community networks, and social movements across Africa.
Through the Generosity Circle, we expect to achieve an expanded research agenda, fostering collective intelligence and stronger relationships among key data stakeholders. We aim to elevate Africa’s global influence on the philanthropy practice and research agenda, showcasing the richness and diversity of our philanthropic traditions.
