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.
Bolu Community Foundation
Donors in the Bolu region of Turkey, who were already giving out charitable donations and scholarships, came together under one roof – the community foundation - to continue and strengthen these philanthropic activities. They are working intensively on early childhood education and launched a first cross-sector program on the issue.
