The mission of the Trust Fund is to fund and promote community-based development projects in Ghana in order to alleviate poverty, solve social problems, economically empower rural communities etc. through funding and promotion of community based development projects.

The Grant Process

Origin Of The Ghanaman CRG Trust Fund

The Ghanaman Community Reinvestment Grant (CRG) Trust Fund is the direct outcome of the United States African Development Foundation’s (USADF) involvement in Ghana over a period of 10 years, during which time the agency promoted grassroots community-based development by providing small grants and loans to organizations and privately held small and medium enterprises that have links to community or farm-based organizations. 



To sustain Ghanaman CRG Trust Fund, there is the need for companies, organizations and individuals to get involved to help fund the many projects that are geared towards developing our rural communities. Every penny and pound you donate goes toward promoting community based development projects to alleviate poverty, solve social problems and empower rural communities especially women.



Since the Trust’s inception, a total of GHS901, 471.92 has been disbursed to support more than 39 projects in the areas of health, water, vocational skills training, and income generating activities, education and sanitation.
