Gift Acceptance Policy – 2023


As a global center of excellence, consistently generating and delivering relevant scientific evidence for the policy and action on population, health, and wellbeing in Africa, the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) has ambitious fundraising goals to meet its strategic plans. We recognize and appreciate the role of funders and gifts in achieving these, and in contributing to our mission and priorities. To ensure alignment with the Center’s values and maintain the organization’s reputation, the gift acceptance policy articulates the overriding principles and guidelines that govern APHRC’s relationship with its funders and the basis for accepting gifts. It facilitates informed solicitation, legal compliance, risk mitigation, donor relations management, and operational efficiency.
