About this grant
The goal of the project is to develop community foundations in Ghana. Over the past year, the PureTrust Foundation LBG introduced the concept of community foundations to 20 communities in 10 regions across the country. The grantee produced learning materials, supported 10 initiative groups and launched one community foundation. Over the next three years, the grantee will provide support and tools to the initiative groups, create a learning community and platforms, continue to popularize the community foundation concept and pilot local resource mobilization activities. Additionally, this grant increase will enable the PureTrust Foundation LBG to provide challenge grants to new community foundations to help build their fundraising capability and funding base.
