Why do you give to Africa Action? We asked one long-time supporter why it was so important to give to Africa Action every year and this is what he said:
"The predecessor bodies to Africa Action played a crucial role in the long struggle for decolonization for Africa and liberation for southern Africa. In this new generation, Africa Action plaus a crucial role in redeeming the promise of liberation by promoting political, economic, and social justice in Africa." -Ralston Deffenbaugh - Columbia, MD
Donating to Africa Action
Africa Action depends on thousands of individuals who donate anything from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars each year to enable us to continue our work. We do not accept U.S. or foreign government funds, and we do not have big corporate underwriters to support our work. Many individuals give through the Combined Federal Campaign and state and local campaigns for which we qualify. Our work requires the support and trust of the public and this shapes how we manage every aspect of our work. Africa Action is audited each year by an independent accounting firm. Expenses for administration and fundraising in 2005 were less than 25%.
