About this grant

This grant will support the development of Mexican community foundations. The Inter-American Foundation manages a program that focuses on members of Comunalia, a network of Mexican community foundations. Over the next three years, the grantee will support the institutional strengthening of Comunalia and its members; manage a sub-grant challenge mechanism for community projects; and provide grants for applied research, donor engagement and education, and evaluation. This grant increase will support technical assistance and training for grassroots development and community philanthropy as well as a new challenge grant fund. The Inter-American Foundation is an independent United States government agency created by congress in 1969 to channel development assistance directly to the poor in Latin America and the Caribbean.
