About this grant
The Global Alliance for Community Philanthropy is a multidonor collaborative aimed at expanding and deepening the role of community philanthropy in strengthening local development efforts.

The Global Fund for Community Foundations is the secretariat for the initiative. In this capacity, the grantee will track, compile, and analyze members’ programming; coordinate and conduct mutual learning efforts; disseminate knowledge both internally and externally; and promote community philanthropy as a valuable development practice. Registered as an independent organization in late 2009, the Global Fund for Community Foundations is a global, grassroots grantmaker seeking to promote community foundations and other local philanthropic institutions in the Global South and in the emerging economies of Central and Eastern Europe.
