About this grant

Since 2019 Evaluar Consultores has laid the groundwork for a long-term program to support community foundation development in Colombia. Activities under the previous grant period include conducting a landscape assessment, testing the concept with various stakeholders, participating in learning events with experienced community foundation development practitioners from other countries, developing a guidebook for legal and tax considerations, setting up a library of Spanish-language materials on community philanthropy and preparing a report on challenges and opportunities. Over 2021-2022, the grantee will elaborate and implement a five-year strategic plan to promote community foundation development in Colombia. Planned activities will include propagating the concept, providing training and technical assistance, supporting ten initiative groups, facilitating the creation of at least two community foundations and establishing a community foundation support organization as a nonprofit entity. Founded in 1986, Evaluar Consultores is a small, private company providing consultancy services to businesses, public institutions, nonprofit organizations and international development agencies in Colombia.
