1847 Philanthropic was established to enhance the long-term viability and financial stability of indigenous organizations in developing countries. We specialize in diversifying donor based funding strategies that support the continuing growth and strength of organizations in Africa.

Our story begins with the significance of 1847. It is the year that the first African country gained independence and established a sovereign state. The goal of 1847 Philanthropic is to build upon the new and continuing independence of philanthropy in Africa. Working with foundations, corporations and institutional investors, our focus is to help create a cohesive and systematic process of fundraising that enables local African organizations to manage, monitor and report their activities with transparency.
