About this grant

The Global Fund for Community Foundations supports the growth and development of community foundations and other community philanthropy organizations around the world. It provides funding, promotes learning and connection across the field and generates knowledge about community philanthropy. Past grant support enabled the grantee to create awareness on the value and contribution of community philanthropy organizations to the broader development agenda. In addition to making grants and providing technical support to its partners, the grantee provided platforms for community foundations to engage with international development agencies and civil society organizations to contribute to the development agenda. In 2022 and 2023, the Global Fund for Community Foundations will continue to make grants, provide technical support and profile community philanthropy through research and convenings.
