Russian Community Foundations: Practice and Strategies

Charities Aid Foundation (2009) Johannesburg, South Africa: Global Fund for Community Foundations

This report summarizes the findings and conclusions of over six months of consultation activities carried out by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) in Russia and commissioned by the Global Fund for Community Foundations. A key conclusion of the exercise is that community foundations in Russia constitute the only functioning and relatively well distributed model of community philanthropy, rooted in the local community and recognized and valued by a variety of stakeholders at community, regional and federal level.

The outcomes of consultation activities and research on Community Foundations and Community Philanthropy in the Philippines

Association of Foundations (2008) Johannesburg, South Africa: Global Fund for Community Foundations

This report documents key findings from consultation activities conducted by the Association of Foundations on behalf of the Global Fund for Community Foundations.  The consultation process confirmed that community philanthropy is active in many forms throughout the Philippines and that support for institutional forms of community philanthropy such as community foundations is growing. This growth in interest can be attributed to a number of factors such as: a decline in the availability of donor funds for civil society activities; the desire of civil society groups for more autonomy and freedom from donor demands; donor fatigue among Filipinos working overseas, whose gift-giving capacity is becoming overstretched; and the emergence of at least one successful Philippine community foundation that provides a model.
