Grants awarded

General

We make grants to a range of community foundations grassroots grantmakers, philanthropy support organizations and local associations. Since we started making grants in 2006 we have awarded US $4.2 million in grants to 176 organizations in 58 countries.

The seven organizations or programmes listed in our grantee profiles give you a sense of the type of organizations we support.

2017 grants plan

In 2017, we will continue to work with existing and new partners, operating a small, global programme focused on leveraging local assets and resources. Interested organizations are welcome to submit concept notes but we should emphasise that our focus is very specifically on community philanthropy organizations and community philanthropy practice. We are also making grants on the topic of community philanthropy and migration in Europe.
