Story About Us

Who we are ?

The Ghana Philanthropy Forum is a Philanthropy Support organization dedicated to promoting Philanthropy in all its forms. We promote the concept of community philanthropy, impact investment, venture philanthropy and emerging forms of social investments. Our work ensures visibility and amplifies the work of third sector organizations in Ghana and within the West-African Sub-region. Our goal is to focus on those efforts that have the greatest potential for transforming the way individuals and entities engage in domestic philanthropy. We are a gateway to African Philanthropy within the sub-region.

Our reach extends beyond capitals to areas where social financing vehicles often have neither a presence. Philanthropic groups and Development partners, which mostly have very limited regional operations, have leveraged GPF’s network to access national and regional stakeholders.
Finally, GPF is a privilege to have a broad convening capacity to gather organizations and key stakeholders from around the country and region to reflect on humanitarian issues.
