Kenya Philanthropy Forum
Description/achievement of initiative

Kenya Philanthropy Forum is the country’s first common “voice” for the Philanthropy sector on discussing and advocating for common interests around enabling environment, data, thematic policies, sub-national government engagement and multi-stakeholder collaborations for the philanthropy sector. 40 foundations came together to endorse this establishment of the KPF which is readily being recognized by Government and other stakeholders as an important grouping in the common effort to localize the SDGs. Many of its members have been facilitated to participate in national UNDAF Steering Committee meetings and in County level Steering Committee meetings as well in UN flagship programs under UNDAF.
