About this grant

This grant will support an organizational, capacity building, technical assistance funding facility for members of the Alliance of Mexican Community Foundations. The U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership will competitively award small, technical assistance grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 for projects that advance the community foundations’ fundraising and resource development capacity, develop their boards, and improve their administrative and financial operations. The grantee will compile project results and report these back to the community foundations for their collective learning. This initiative is one of three programming components (the other two are leadership development and challenge grants for grantmaking and endowment building) being supported by a funder collaborative of the Inter-American, Kellogg, and Mott foundations created to support the development of Mexican community foundations. Established in 2002, the U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership is a bi-national membership organization whose goal is to strengthen and grow community philanthropy in the U.S.-Mexico border region.
