Airbnb, through its Africa Pledge, along with the collaboration of its hosts, aims to disburse grants totalling $10m to various organisations across the continent through its Airbnb Community Fund, part of Airbnb’s broader commitment to economic empowerment, digital access, and sustainability in Africa until 2025.

The fund will benefit notable organisations such as The Wilderness Foundation Africa, Digify Africa, Wildlife ACT, Africa Ignite, A Rocha Kenya, and Breadline Africa among others.

Established in 2020, the Airbnb Community Fund has pledged to distribute $100m globally by the end of 2030, aiming to strengthen communities worldwide. In its third year, the fund has allocated $10m to support over 120 nonprofits across 44 countries and six continents. Nearly $8m of this amount was channelled through partnerships with Airbnb hosts, who played a key role in selecting organisations addressing crucial community needs.

African recipients, including The Wilderness Foundation Africa and Digify Africa, were chosen by the Airbnb Host Advisory Board, comprised of 23 hosts representing the global host community. Additionally, local Host Clubs, formed by volunteer hosts, collaborated to identify, nominate, and vote on organizations with a significant impact on their local communities.

Airbnb’s ongoing commitment to community empowerment and support is evident through the Airbnb Community Fund, which, to date, has distributed over $25m to organisations in 60 countries. The funds, distributed between December 2023 and February 2024, signify Airbnb’s dedication to investing in local communities, empowering hosts, and championing causes that align with the values of its stakeholders.
