About this grant

This grant assists with a global community foundation conference aimed at information sharing and exchange of best practice. Given the growth of the community foundation field internationally over the last decade, it is important to convene key community foundation leaders within a worldwide context. This first-ever event will bring together 175 leaders from community foundations, support organizations, and academic centers to exchange ideas and discuss common issues and concerns. The sponsoring organization is WINGS, the Worldwide Initiative for Grantmaker Support, a project of the European Foundation Centre. The conference is entitled Community Foundations: Symposium on a Global Movement, and it will be held in Berlin in December 2004.
