The Value of Community Philanthropy: Results of a Consultation

January 14, 2014

The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Aga Khan Foundation USA, in partnership with the Global Fund for Community Foundations, brought together leaders in the field of community philanthropy for three roundtable discussions held over a year’s time. The subsequent report, The Value of Community Philanthropy: Results of a Consultation, synthesizes the results of those consultations conducted in Washington D.C. in September 2010; Johannesburg in June 2011; and Dhaka, Bangladesh, in September 2011.

The report examines the evolving field of community philanthropy worldwide and explores ways to support it as a means of helping build civil society and leverage the effectiveness of development aid. Originally published in English, The Value of Community Philanthropy also has been translated into Spanish and Turkish.
