The Wits Business School Chair in African Philanthropy
The Wits Business School (WBS) Chair in African Philanthropy, the first of its kind
on the continent, is a joint initiative with the Southern Africa Trust. The purpose is
to advance the cause of philanthropy and social investment by better
understanding the function and types of gifting across the continent.
The Chair aligns with the WBS approach of ensuring business is fully aware of the
values and dynamics of the societies in which they operate, in this instance, the
richness of gifting that underpins the resilience of African societies.
