At the New York University Africa House, we believe that scholarship makes an important difference in African affairs, especially when it engages leaders who design and implement policy. We use our location in New York to build a community of people, like you, who take Africa and African issues seriously. We also envision Africa House as a place where Africans and people from all walks of life in the United States can come together to exchange ideas and to better understand each other. Our aim is to raise the general awareness here that the lives, aspirations and talents of Africans—though different in various cultural ways just like the American people —are fundamentally similar to Americans.

At the moment our programs are carried out at various venues provided by NYU. As part of a private, non-profit institution like NYU, we must appeal to our generous donors for much-needed support, not only to sustain our numerous events and programs on campus, but to allow us to grow and make Africa House a truly influential institution.

Friends of Africa House

The Friends of Africa House campaign recognizes those donors who make a tax-deductible gift of at least $1,000 to Africa House. Donors are listed on the Africa House website and are invited to all events. As a Friend of Africa House, feedback and ideas for the future of Africa House will be highly sought after and regarded.

We are pleased to take this opportunity to designate Judith and Michael Thoyer to the Africa House Honor Roll. They have been very generous supporters of our program since its inception. Each year the Honor Roll will recognize donors who contribute $25,000 or more.
