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, over the past two years Comunalia deepened the knowledge and integration of the goals at nine community foundations through training, mentoring and financial support. During the upcoming grant period, the grantee will map existing initiatives related to the goals and define priority issues and common indicators for all of its current 17 members. It will create a data dashboard with local disaggregated data and common indicators and develop a communications strategy and resources for use by the entire alliance, as well as by individual community foundations. 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.
