With a deep–rooted commitment to participatory development, CFK Africa has been focused on fighting extreme poverty in African informal settlements for over 20 years. We offer a variety of giving options to make it easy to join our giving community.
Your donation helps ensure the sustainability of our life-changing programs.
Asante sana – thank you – for your support.
We welcome donations through the mail. To make a tax-deductible donation by mail, please mail your check or money order (made out to “CFK Africa”) to our US office:
1700 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3277
Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the purpose of supporting charitable organizations. By recommending a grant from your DAF to CFK Africa, you can support our work with funds you already have set aside. Just let your DAF custodian know that you would like to recommend a grant to CFK Africa.
Rather than cash, some supporters choose to donate their appreciated stock directly to us, enabling donors to help us build healthy communities and develop youth leaders, at less of a cost to you. Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset.

If you would like to include CFK Africa in your planned giving or have questions regarding planned giving, please contact Deputy Director of Communications and Development, Emma Harver, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
