      Abstract

      The primary question addressed in this chapter is: what is known about African philanthropy across the continent? Secondly, what does literature on African philanthropy look like? The paper is based on a scoping and documentation exercise of literature on African philanthropy. The exercise was aimed at identifying existing literature on African philanthropy and to contribute to ongoing analysis with a view to surfacing the ‘meaning’, ‘relevance’ and ‘identity’ of African philanthropy and its prevalent manifestations in existing literature. The chapter hopes to make modest contributions towards these aims by offering preliminary overview of the diversity, forms, expressions and models of African philanthropy in identified existing literature.
