About this grant

This grant supports the Council on Foundations’ Global Philanthropy Program, which is framed around three pillars of activity: 1) effective cross-border grantmaking; 2) policy and regulation of cross-border grantmaking; and 3) global conversations and convening. This grant increase will support the first-ever North American Community Foundations Summit in Mexico City in February 2018. The conference is being co-organized by the Council on Foundations, Comunalia (alliance of Mexican community foundations), and Community Foundations of Canada. Founded in 1949, the Council on Foundations is a membership organization of private, community, and corporate foundations, primarily in the United States.
