Support our work

We are grateful to our funding partners for their generosity, which has allowed us to produce high-quality data and analysis on the experiences and evaluations of ordinary Africans and make it freely available to the public

Our work is made possible by the generous support of our funding partners. We do not charge fees for access to our data and publications and for participation in our activities. In order to sustain this public good, which is highly valued and widely used on the continent and internationally, and continues to build capacity for survey research, analysis, and dissemination, we need the security of long-term, flexible funding.

We will continue to engage with various funders for long-term flexible support to ensure the sustainability of an independent, scientifically rigorous African source of reliable data on Africa. Given our impact across the continent and indeed the world, we hope that African policy and development actors as well as the business community would invest in our efforts to ensure that ordinary Africans have a say in decisions and actions that affect their lives.

Our intention is to secure the long-term sustainability of public opinion research as an important part of African democracy, especially by garnering multi-year contributions to support our programs.

We invite all grantmakers who wish to fund our important work, wherever you may be located, to discuss this with Afrobarometer’s Resources Mobilisation Coordinator Runyararo Munetsi.

In particular, for U.S.-based individual and corporate funders seeking tax-efficient giving, contributions can be made to the Friends of Afrobarometer fund at KBFUS (a public charity within the meaning of sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the IRS, which are tax-deductible to the maximum allowed by U.S. tax law).

If you are an individual or a corporate entity based in the U.S. and wish to support us, therefore, this is how to proceed:
