The African Grantmakers Network (AGN) convened its 2012 biennial assembly in Johannesburg, South Africa, between 30th October and 1st November, 2012. The assembly brought together over 300 participants and 75 speakers, 54% of whom were women and 46% men, from more than 25 countries in 30 structured conversations and countless informal ones to discuss Growing African Philanthropy: What’s New, What’s Now, What’s Next? In addition, 344 people followed the AGN assembly conversations through live streaming from 29 different countries in Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
This document presents the key strands of the conversations that took place at the assembly – as well as some of the milestones in the growth of AGN that occurred during the assembly.

The development, grantmaking, and philanthropy sector is awash with reports of conferences and meetings. We didn’t think it would be useful to simply produce another report that describes what each speaker said, geared towards showing that the meeting happened for purposes of reporting to funders of the event. Instead, we wanted to present a purposeful reflection of the key concepts, interests, and proposals for the future that emerged during the discussions in general – without attribution of views or comments to particular individuals.
