About this grant

The Community Foundation Network is a membership organization of community foundations in the United Kingdom. It has supported the development and expansion of community foundations over the past 20 years by providing technical assistance, training, data collection, research, marketing, financial assistance, and advocacy. Recently, the grantee has focused its efforts on services that generate new funding, enable more effective work through collaboration and better use of technology, and share learning within the United Kingdom and internationally. Currently, there are 57 network members covering 98 percent of the United Kingdom. Collectively, these community foundations provided approximately $120 million in grants in 2009-2010, and their endowment assets exceed $400 million. With this grant increase, the grantee will organize events connected to a Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support meeting in London.
