For the social enterprises we champion, Alfanar's guidance and support is transformative.

Alfanar is an engine for change, guiding promising social ventures that both improve lives in vulnerable communities and demonstrate a commitment to financial sustainability and growth.

Through a combination of tailored financing, management support, bespoke training and impact measurement, we empower social enterprises in Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan with the intellectual and capital investment they need to scale sustainably.

This approach is known as Venture Philanthropy or Social Investment.

Recipients of Alfanar's Venture Philanthropy support can expect to receive up to £500,000 in financial investment over a four year period, in addition to extensive management support and training. 

Every £1,000 we give in grants is matched with £480 worth of high-engagement management support, taking the form of weekly accountability calls, monthly in-person visits, networking connections, training and business planning, and global exchange opportunities.
