About this grant

The purpose of the project is to develop community foundations in Ghana. To achieve this goal, the Pure Trust Social Investors Foundation will increase awareness and interest in the community foundation concept in communities across Ghana and expand knowledge and understanding of the concept among key stakeholders and potential partners. In addition, the grantee will pilot fundraising events to assess interest in communities, adapt the concept to the Ghanaian context, and develop a long-term strategy for community foundation development in Ghana. The grantee was established in 2014 to create social and economic solutions that are inclusive of the poorest in communities across Ghana.
