Promoting Philanthropy in Kenya: Making the Case for Tax Reforms

by Connie NGOndi-Houghton

Nov 1, 2004

In September 2001, the Ford Foundation gave a project grant to K-Rep Holdings Limited to support this study. It was meant to identify and document current laws that constrain philanthropy, identify and develop specific positive legal and policy reform recommendations; and suggest strategies and possible actors in the public, private and non-profit sectors for the promotion of a conducive legal and fiscal environment for local philanthropy. The study report is meant to serve as a basic document for the design of a campaign for tax law reform for an enabling fiscal environment for philanthropy.
