Community Philanthropy

Our grant making is premised on the notion of community philanthropy. Our aim is to shift the power inherent of development funding. We support communities to develop assets and explore the potential of community philanthropy and the spirit of local giving towards community initiatives. 



“We had no source of income to sustain our operations during the pandemic. The grant enabled us to keep our operational rhythm. We are a youth led Organization, entirely dependent on cultural exchanges as a revenue stream. The lock down affected travels, making it hard for the exchanges to take place. We are grateful to Civil Collective”.
