In case you missed it… The Africa Center at Aliko Dangote Hall is named in recognition of transformative $20 million donation by the Aliko Dangote Foundation.
The Africa Center in New York City has announced gifts of $20 million from the Aliko Dangote Foundation and $5 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in support of a $50 million capital campaign and ongoing operations.
The gifts will jump-start fundraising in support of the final phase of construction on a 70,000-square-foot facility at the northern end of Manhattan’s Museum Mile as well as programmatic initiatives focused on culture, business, and public policy. The gift from the Dangote Foundation also will support efforts to transform global understanding of the African continent and help change narratives about the continent’s economic and cultural significance. In recognition of the gift, the space will be renamed the Africa Center at Aliko Dangote Hall.
