About Vine Fund

In 2020, the world experienced the devastating impact of COVID-19, which led to nationwide lockdowns and government restrictions. In Ghana and Nigeria, small charities and social enterprises were hit very hard. That’s why Vine Fund 1 is supporting organisations that help communities in these countries.

To Foundervine, ‘giving back’ should be a part of every organisation’s reason for existing. That’s why at they have been raising funding from their employees and community to assist mission-driven organisations to get back on track.

The funding can be used for:

  • Helping you work with communities that are recovering
