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).
Manakau Community Foundation
The migrant community of Manakau in New Zealand performs in a band. Music is a way to connecting to each other and to communicate with their new community. The Manakau Community Foundation supports this activity with a grant.
The assets of community foundations in the United States are seventeen times greater than the next largest country - Canada.
Unity Foundation of La Porte County
This US foundation identified 14 rural communities in its area that need assistance with community and economic development. All lack the human, technical, financial, and leadership capacity to grow, thrive, and even survive. Partnering with local agencies, the foundation has worked with these communities to raise awareness and build capacity.
