Introduction The Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group (AGAG) is a membership organization of grantmakers currently funding, or interested in funding, in Africa. AGAG has its roots in the South Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group, a loose network of donors involved in South Africa during the 1980s. In 2000, this group was reconstituted as the Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group and expanded its mandate to include all of Africa. AGAG established an office in 2001, hired staff, and began the process of growing from a loose network of foundations into a formal organization. AGAG’s mission is to promote increased and more effective foundation funding in Africa through building and sharing knowledge about primarily U. S. foundation funding in Africa. AGAG is a project of the Tides Center and is housed in the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. This directory on “Funding for HIV/AIDS in South Africa” was compiled to serve a resource for grantmakers who are interested in starting a new program, or expanding a current program, to support efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Although AGAG focuses primarily on foundations in the United States, this directory also includes foundations based in Europe and in Africa. It is not meant to be a definitive list, but to serve as a starting point. AGAG welcomes information from foundations who are not listed in this directory that are funding HIV/AIDS-related activities in South Africa and would like to be included. AGAG hopes this directory will be a useful tool for funders. It contains contact information and a brief description of HIV/AIDS-related funding and the annual budget (to the extent that this information was available) for each foundation. Information was gathered from foundation staff, websites, and other public sources. For detailed information about the funding programs of the foundations included in this directory, please consult the website listed with each foundation.
