Since its commencement of activities in 2005 the ELMA Foundation has grown into one of the world’s largest private foundations focused exclusively on children in Africa.
The ELMA Relief Foundation provides post-disaster emergency assistance throughout the globe with special attention to the needs of children, who often suffer disproportionately in the aftermath of such tragedies.
The ELMA South Africa Foundation funds selected programs not aimed specifically at children, within the country of South Africa.
The ELMA Music Foundation supports community-based youth organizations that feature music as part of their programming. It also funds programs that provide support services for members of the music community who fall on hard times.
Beginning its grant-investing activities in 2012, the ELMA Vaccines and Immunization Foundation seeks to improve vaccine and immunization coverage for children.
The ELMA Philanthropies Services is the services arm of the ELMA Group of Foundations. From locations in New York, Cape Town and Dar es Salaam we develop program strategies, identify and explore grant making opportunities, monitor grant performance, and establish philanthropic relationships for the Foundations.
The ELMA Group of Foundations provides sizeable philanthropic assistance to high impact initiatives within each Foundation’s area of focus.
