About this grant

The program goal is to enhance the development of community philanthropy globally. To this end, the Research Foundation of the City University of New York, in cooperation with the City University of New York Graduate Center, runs an annual international community foundation fellowship program. Each year, the program offers emerging leaders and seasoned community foundation practitioners from foreign countries opportunities to learn about community foundations through an intensive graduate program of research, seminars, conferences, mentoring, and internships. A grant increase will allow the program staff to conduct interviews with selected alumni, produce case studies that identify lessons learned from the globalization of community foundations, and provide new materials on community foundations for program seminars and to share with others in the field.
