About this grant

The project goal is to develop community foundations in Spain. To this end, the Spanish Association of Foundations will launch a ten-year program to foster a strong and vibrant community foundation movement in Spain. Through this program, the grantee will develop at least 40 new community foundations, covering 50 percent of Spain’s territory; create a national network of Spanish community foundations; ensure that the community foundations adhere to internally developed quality standards; and encourage the Spanish community foundations to play a leadership role in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals on the local level. Additionally, the grantee will connect the Spanish community foundation movement internationally. During the first two years, the focus will be on building the capacity of the project team, publicizing the community foundation concept, and supporting the most promising local initiatives to develop community foundations.
