2013 Annual Report

March 14, 2014

Somehow, we managed to one-up ourselves in 2013. We continue to grow our giving and the number of organizations we support and will start off 2014 with over 140 partners. We will continue to focus on place-based, grassroots organizations and strengthening the capacity of our partners. We’ll also continue to focus on reproductive health and engaging youth. We believe these are the key areas of intervention that will lead to future generations of healthy and productive communities in Sub Saharan Africa. 

This past May, President Bill Clinton delivered the keynote speech at our Annual Meeting. In some ways this was a capstone of my journey into philanthropy. The former president was a primary inspiration in getting us started, and attending his meetings years ago led us to focus on Sub Saharan Africa. He spoke eloquently and described the SFF family as a “community of creative cooperators.”
