When mission, vision, values, and approach align, a space for innovative partnerships opens up. AiD and IDEX have taken advantage of this alignment to forge a new path for solidarity philanthropy.
International Development Exchange (IDEX) invests in initiatives led by the women, youth, and indigenous people who are solving our world's most pressing problems.
Africans in the Diaspora began a partnership with IDEX in September 2014. The partnership brought together two organizations committed to community-driven development and social justice philanthropy. AiD is being incubated by IDEX and operates as a legal entity of IDEX, receiving organizational, operational and programmatic support.
IDEX and AiD work on targeted joint programming and outreach to engage diasporans in strategic philanthropy and to channel those resources to local, grassroots organizations that are transforming their communities. While AiD functions as a legal project of IDEX that is eligible for tax-deductible donations, its programs and communications remain independent. AiD is based in New York city.
Now in its 29th year, IDEX identifies, evaluates, and grows the best ideas from local leaders and organizations to alleviate poverty and injustice around the world. IDEX connects a passionate and engaged network of supporters to the visionary leaders and organizations creating lasting solutions to their communities’ most pressing challenges.
