About this grant

The project goal is to promote and develop philanthropy globally. Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support is a global network linking grantmaker associations and support organizations through international exchange, information services, networking, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. During 2007-2008, the network was managed by the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium in Manila. Accomplishments during this period include adding thirteen new members, organizing seven peer learning events and exchange visits, and producing several publications on relevant topics. During 2009-2010, in addition to continuing its capacity-building activities for grantmaker associations and support organizations, the network will focus on ensuring its own institutional sustainability. The Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium is an independent association of grantmaking institutions and organizations that support the growth and development of philanthropy in the Asia Pacific region.
