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 $2.8 million in grants to 150 organizations in 50 countries.
The seven organizations or programmes listed in our grantee profiles give you a sense of the type of organizations we support.
In 2013, we have continued to make grants under our Youth Civic Engagement programme (with support from the Mott Foundation), our Africa programme (with support from TrustAfrica) and a global programme focused on leveraging local assets and resources (support from an anonymous donor). Because our grant funds are limited, most of our grants are awarded through a closed call for proposals.
