AISTIPHI | Philanthropy Space™


We provide institutional incentives to boost corporate philanthropy, social charity and community service in Ghana. We publish in real time philanthropic and goodwill interventions in the Aistiphi Gazette. This way, organizations can showcase how their philanthropic giving and community service is affecting lives in Ghana’s communities and fighting poverty. We pioneered and host Our Commonwealth of Goodwill™, a community platform for businesses and civic organizations to assert their presence in Ghana’s Philanthropy Space.

At Aistiphi, we are convinced that businesses and corporate foundations, NGOs, civic groups and international partners, have the power to make an even greater impact on poverty and improve the quality of life in Ghana’s communities through sustained charitable giving and community service. We also believe that this huge potential could be harnessed by providing innovative incentives to encourage more giving that is impactful. This is why we do what we do at Aistiphi. And we love it!

We are a social enterprise. As a socially-oriented business, we succeed when we foster an outpouring of goodwill and charity from businesses, civil society and the public. Our income model is built on member subscriptions, especially corporate subscriptions. We also get income from philanthropy brand advertising, research and consultancy services.


The Aistiphi Communities are designed so that everyone is connected in some way. Depending on where you fit, you can help bring your school, alumni network, church, employer, association, etc. onboard Our Commonwealth of Goodwill. You could also help support our work by liking us on facebook and spreading the word about our work among your contacts and friends.

More importantly, you can start to make a difference wherever you find yourself, whichever way you can. Helping improve infrastructure, providing equipment and essential supplies, volunteering, contributing money, helping raise funds and leveraging of strategic assets are only a few of the many ways you could give back to help us achieve our goal. We are glad you are on board.
