About this grant

Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support is a global network linking 86 philanthropic associations and support organizations from 35 countries through international exchange, information services, networking, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. While working in different contexts, the grantee’s members share a common vision of a strong, global philanthropic community that strives to build more equitable and just societies around the world. The grantee works in the following strategic areas: 1) thought leadership; 2) network building and engagement; 3) knowledge and capacity building; and 4) governance and sustainability. Over the next two years, this will include the preparation of a global forum in 2017, 16 Webinars, four face-to-face regional learning and sharing meetings, a toolkit on transparency and accountability, case studies on local cultures of giving, two new reports for an Infrastructure in Focus Series, and other activities. This grant increase will support a recruitment process for a new executive director.
