AFLI appreciates, and depends upon, the financial support of our sponsors, foundations, alumni and individuals. These generous contributions allow us to provide world-class programmes, and to sustain a growing network of high-potential leaders from across Africa.

Celebrating our 10th Anniversary in 2015, we will establish an endowment to ensure the financial sustainability of the Institute as we continue reinforce the leadership values of our patron, Desmond Tutu.

There are several ways to contribute to AFLI’s vision and success, either as an individual or as an organisation. Please join us in making our funding goals a reality.

Corporate Sponsorship

Become a sponsor of the prestigious Archbishop Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellowship and enjoy access to a network of Africa’s top young leaders spanning a multitude of sectors. Corporate sponsorship packages start at USD 30,000.

Trusts and Foundations

The transformation of Africa is going to be achieved through this generation of young leaders. The Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellowship is a unique programme that equips leaders possessing a strong moral compass and unwavering resolve to elevate Africa’s profile, with the skills and knowledge required to create a stronger Africa. By investing in the development of these leaders, your trust or foundation will be maximizing its impacts on the continent.

High Net Worth Individuals

As we continue to develop AFLI, we are looking to prestigious leaders to seed our endowment fund. These individuals believe in proliferating the leadership values espoused by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and apart from their financial contributions, will have the opportunity to share their expertise and experience with the growing network of Tutu Fellows across the continent.

Custom Programmes

The African Leadership Institute is respected for developing world-class programmes in collaboration with Oxford University. With a high-caliber faculty and access to distinguished leaders across the globe, AFLI offers select organisations the opportunity to design custom leadership programmes.
