We are building an equitable community of visionary organizations—both doers and donors—across Sub-Saharan Africa so that together we can improve the lives of millions. Learn more.
At Segal Family Foundation, we believe in a world where development is steered by grassroots leaders and power is shifted into the hands of communities.
We work across Sub-Saharan Africa and strive to be true partners to our grantees. We want to change the power dynamics inherent in traditional philanthropy and prove that a new, more equitable, and responsive approach is not only more fair, but more effective.
Beyond grantmaking, Segal Family Foundation has made a number of debt or equity investments in social enterprises in East Africa. These organizations are often similar to the NGOs we support with grant funding: early-stage entrepreneurs who are creating innovative, scalable models to address Africa’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.
