WINGS Community Foundation Global Status Report 2010
A new format for the GSR
The 2010 Community Foundation Global Status Report is the sixth in a series of reports on the development of community foundations around the world, and the first web-based version of this signature report. It was commissioned and funded by Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support (WINGS).
Community Foundation for the Western Region of Zimbabwe
A Zimbabwean farmer proudly presents the community market garden funded by a grant from the Community Foundation for the Western Region of Zimbabwe. The grant enables a local community to provide food for the community and generate income from the sales of its crop.
The number of community foundations across the world has almost doubled in the past 10 years.
UK community foundations
Through the Fair Share Trust, a programme targeting funding at the seventy-seven most deprived areas of the UK, greater involvement and trust of local people is seen in deciding what local priorities for grants are and in allocating funding.
