About ACT Foundation

Aspire Coronation Trust (Act) Foundation is a grant-making nonprofit organisation. It was established in 2016 to support local, national, and regional non-profit organisations working to address challenges and associated vulnerabilities across the African Continent.

Basically, ACT believes that grantmaking is a critical tool in engineering social change, and even more inspired by the long and short term partnerships they make. Its strength lies in the partnerships it creates and sustains through funding for programs and activities that have great potential of altering the downward trajectory of development on the African continent. The mission is to drive sustainable impact across Africa.

  1. Organisational Development
  2. Monitoring and Evaluation
