About this grant
The Community of Solidary Organizations is a network of 240 nongovernmental organizations with a mission to build a community of strengthened and connected organizations that can influence the development of a just and sustainable society in Chile. A group of Chilean stakeholders, led by a current Mott grantee charged with raising awareness about the community foundation concept in Chile, has collectively determined that the Community of Solidary Organizations is best equipped to lead a full-fledged program to develop community foundations in their country. Accordingly, over a six-month period, the grantee will create a development plan for such a program. Activities will include establishing the program’s governance, priorities and performance indicators; developing a narrative to best articulate the community foundation concept; discovering territories where there is an interest in establishing community foundations; developing a training plan for local leaders, and creating a three-year program deployment plan.
