Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT) Foundation is seeking applications for the 2022 Grant Cycle.

At ACT Foundation, they have adopted a responsive approach to grant making. By funding focused-interventions, they work across a broad spectrum of developmental issues clustered within their focus areas. They believe that grant making is a critical tool in engineering social change, and even more they are inspired by the long and short term partnerships they make. Their strength lies in the partnerships they create and sustain through funding for programs and activities that have great potential of altering the downward trajectory of development on the African continent. Their mission to drive sustainable impact across Africa pushes them beyond boundaries; and as such they always strive to do more.


Focus Areas
Health: Their goal is to facilitate better health care services for the vulnerable and marginalized groups in their society.

Environment: In a joint report by WHO & UNICEF (August 2004) it was stated that about 2.4 billion people will likely face the risk of needless diseases and death by the target of 2015 because of bad sanitation such as decaying or non-existent sewage systems which will fuel the spread of diseases like cholera and diarrhea which kills 1 child every 21 seconds

Entrepreneurship: The United Nations Sustainable Development Report states that the percentage of people living below the extreme poverty line dropped by half between 2002 and 2012, from 26 to 13 per cent. This translated to one in eight people worldwide living in extreme poverty in 2012. Poverty remains widespread in Sub-Saharan Africa, where more than 40 per cent of people lived on less than 1.90 US dollars a day in 2013.

Leadership: They recognize that they have leadership challenges as a nation and a continent, therefore, there is need to build a new generation of credible, accountable and ethical leaders who will propel the continent towards effective and sustainable economic and human development as well as peace and security.
