The conference has been essential in advancing philanthropy throughout Africa and setting the stage for upcoming actions ever since it was founded. Its increasing influence is seen in the fact that it draws more and more delegates from all around the world with every year that goes by. The conference agenda includes a broad range of subjects, such as creative finance models for social impact and community-centered giving, as well as philanthropic answers to urgent concerns and the incorporation of technology in philanthropy.
