Collecting More Local Stories

WINGS Global Status Report on Community Foundations icon

May 2011 - share your local stories

The Global Status Report aims to offer a selection of stories, collected from all around the world, to demonstrate successful projects and their impact on communities. In this way the GSR 2010 stays connected to this vital network of Community Foundations. We are always eager to receive new stories to add on to this website.

In 300-400 words, please summarize your story and e-mail to Vera Billen at

Some ideas that you could include are a brief history of the project, details of how the project was developed, why your community foundation/organization became involved, and/or a description of how the project has impacted the community. Be precise, use fact and figures, amount of grant spend, number of people benefited, etc.

Please attach one or two engaging and compelling photos that we can use to post with this story.
