Big, bold, brave: Building a philanthropy movement, the Gathering of Givers 2021
On 30th September 2021, CivSource Africa hosted its second annual Gathering of Givers under the theme “Big, Bold, Brave: Building a Philanthropy Movement.” The event was organized in-person across three countries in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda) and was also livestreamed on social media. The Gathering featured addresses and stories from givers representing private businesses, youth, civil society and foundations. Contributors shared stories of giving, and showcased initiatives and practices of local giving. The aim was to inspire bigness, boldness and bravery amongst givers – in other words, for givers to appreciate the power within them to change their community, nation, region and eventually, the African continent. This report paints a picture of the Gathering of Givers 2021, and reflects on what this may mean for future actions around building local philanthropy in Uganda, East Africa and Africa more widely.
