What We Do

We celebrate Africa. We champion African leaders. We want African ingenuity to get the financial backing it deserves, and we want to lead the way for other foundations. 

How We Do It 

Segal Family Foundation invests in visionary proximate leaders with bold ideas and huge potential to transform society, and we help progressive donors do the same.

Our grantmaking team is 100% African—a rarity—and we’re building the most influential network of African leaders on the continent who can share resources and intel to advance positive change. We’re American-born and African-led, with deep, long-term relationships in the communities we serve.

Where We Work

We support organizations working across Sub-Saharan Africa. The vast majority of our partners are in East Africa where we have built a team.
