The Aspire Coronation Trust Foundation 2023 Grants Cycle is now open for non-profit organisations and social enterprises in Africa.
At ACT Foundation, they have adopted a responsive approach to grant making. By funding focused-interventions, the foundation works across a broad spectrum of developmental issues clustered within its focus areas.
The ACT Foundation believe that grant making is a critical tool in engineering social change, and even more the foundation is inspired by the long and short term partnerships they make. Foundation’s strength lies in the partnerships they create and sustain through funding for programs and activities that have great potential of altering the downward trajectory of development on the African continent. Foundation’s mission to drive sustainable impact across Africa pushes us beyond boundaries; and as such the foundation always strives to do more.
- The Foundation is committed to building capacity in the African development sector. Capacity building is a potent way to strengthen the development sector particularly because it encourages the drive for sustainable impact.
- The foundation offers support that aids its grantees/partners in the delivery of efficient and more efficient outcomes to beneficiaries. Updates on foundation’s training schedules will be made available on its website, while applications may be requested. In any case, partner organizations may be accorded priority.
