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 Leipzig
German Chancellor Angela Merkel awards the Community Foundation Leipzig with the 'Förderpreis Aktive Bürgerschaft 2009' for its educational programmes, specifically for using music as a vehicle for education.
We found that support to community foundations was highly available in North America but much less so in Africa.
The Community Foundation for Ireland
This nationally based community foundation is addressing key social issues through its Impact Grants Programme. The first National LGBT Helpline, a confidential telephone support service for Ireland’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population, was established after a need for it was identified through the foundation’s grassroots grantmaking activity.
