Using the data on donations for Ebola-stricken countries from the Financial Tracking Service, Silk took at a look at the donations coming from Africa (governments, foundations and corporations).
Donations committed by donor country
The African Union is headquartered in Ethiopia; The African Development Bank is headquartered in Ivory Coast. Donations of $0 are in-kind donations.
In total a little over US$ 80 million has been donated so far (November 10, 2014) by 52 different African donors. Close to 80% of this amount came from various donations by the African Development Bank. (At least US$ 5 million of all private donations as specified by FTS came from unidentified donors, so these could also have come from African donors.)

Destination countries of African donations
The majority of the donations were meant for the unspecified West African region.
Looking only at donations for specified destination countries, it shows most donations were for Nigeria - a country with only an initial transmission of Ebola, that was declared over in October. In comparison, the worst-affected countries Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have only (directly) received 4% of all African donations.
