About this grant

The West Coast Community Foundation makes grants and provides support and training to community organizations in the West Coast region of the Western Cape, one of the poorest and most under-resourced parts of the province. Mott provided funding for institutional, operational, and staff support to help develop the West Coast Community Foundation as a viable community foundation in the West Coast region. This grant will continue to provide such support with an emphasis on governance, resource mobilization, infrastructure development, and asset building. The grant will also assist the West Coast Community Foundation with marketing and promotion, as it seeks to build an endowment fund for its long-term sustainability.
