Since its inception in 2004 Aid for Africa has brought together more than 100 US-registered nonprofits working in Sub Saharan Africa. We have raised more than $8.5 million to support the work of these organizations and amplified their successes through our outreach efforts.

Whether they were collecting and distributing books to school children, introducing medical strategies to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, or identifying and supporting women’s micro-enterprise projects, Aid for Africa’s members worked hand in hand with their partners in Africa to build a better future for families and communities.

In 2012 Aid for Africa established the Aid for Africa Endowment for Food and Sustainable Agriculture at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. The Endowment supports graduate student research focused on the linkages between agriculture, nutrition, food security and poverty reduction.

Aid for Africa ceased operations on September 1, 2020. The members of the Board of Directors wish to thank our donors, staff, member organizations and other friends for their support. Together we have gone far.

The Aid for Africa Endowment for Food and Sustainable Agriculture will continue to support research to better understand science-based development.
