About this grant

The project goal is to develop community foundations in Spain. To this end, in 2020, the Spanish Association of Foundations launched a 10-year program to foster a strong and vibrant community foundation movement in Spain. Through this program, the grantee will: 1) develop at least 40 new community foundations, covering 50% of Spain’s territory; 2) create a national network of Spanish community foundations; 3) ensure that the community foundations adhere to internally developed quality standards; and 4) encourage the Spanish community foundations to play a leadership role in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals on the local level. During the next two years, the grantee will focus on promoting the concept of community foundations, developing new community foundations and strengthening their capacities and facilitating networking among community foundations on the national and international levels. During the past grant period, the Spanish Association of Foundations increased the capacity of the project team, publicized the community foundation concept, supported the most promising local initiatives to develop community foundations and facilitated the establishment of two new community foundations.
