About this grant

The program goal is to advance the adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by community foundations in Mexico. To this end, Comunalia will partner with Pacto Global in Mexico to provide technical support, workshops, communication strategies, reference materials, digital tools and funding opportunities to Mexican community foundations. The project will include monthly two-hour workshops, grants to five community foundations, technical assistance in developing partnerships and alliances with local and national entities and help in raising visibility around the Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in 2009, and constituted as a nonprofit legal entity in 2011, Comunalia is an alliance of community foundations in Mexico that focuses on local development and strategic social investment and currently has 16 members.
