Tusk Wins CAF America International Philanthropy Award

Each year CAF America, the leader in international grantmaking​, recognises three industry leaders for their outstanding international philanthropic achievements. At the organisation’s 5th annual ​Celebration of International Philanthropy, Tusk became their first Friends Fund honouree, out of 1.8 million eligible organisations. Edwards Lifesciences Foundation and Vanguard Charitable were the other two recipients this year.

CAF America President and CEO Ted Hart, said “CAF America has the privilege to work with inspiring partners on fulfilling their international charitable aspirations. This year’s award recipients are recognised for their commitment and profound impact on bettering the lives of others on a global scale.”

“We have nominated Tusk Trust for your dedication to shaping a tomorrow where the people of Africa can reconnect with nature, understand its inherent value and protect it for future generations. Tusk’s work to empower local communities and connect global partners to protect Africa’s unique wildlife and natural habitats is truly inspirational.” 

Receiving the Award on behalf of Tusk, CEO and Founder Charlie Mayhew said “Tusk has been raising funds in the US for a number of years, but it is our partnership with CAF over the last couple of years that has enabled us to raise so much more – we are extremely grateful to have been recognised in this way and delighted to partner with CAF America, who administer our Friends of Tusk Fund.”
