About us

The African Union Foundation (AU Foundation) mobilises resources in support of the African Union’s vision of an integrated, people-centred and prosperous Africa, at peace with itself and taking its rightful place in the world.

Launched in January 2015 following approval at the 21st Ordinary Assembly of Heads of States and Government in May 2013, the AU Foundation raises funds from the private sector and individuals on the continent and beyond towards the financing of African development priorities.
