About this grant

The project goal is to develop community foundations in Austria. To this end, Austrian National Foundations Association — Verband für gemeinnütziges Stiften — will: 1) increase the capacity of the project team to support community foundation development in Austria; 2) develop and publish community foundation-related learning resources; 3) support the establishment of at least four community foundations; and 4) identify new communities interested in establishing community foundations. The grantee will also raise additional resources for the project from local and national sources in Austria. During the past grant period, the Austrian National Foundations Association promoted the community foundation concept on the national and local levels, introduced 33 communities throughout Austria to the program, created a series of learning materials and provided capacity building to eight initiative groups interested in creating community foundations.
