News from the community foundation field

The 2010 WINGS Global Status Report on Community Foundations is now available online.

The 2010 WINGS Community Foundations Global Status Report is now available in a new online format. According to the report, globally, the number of community foundations has almost doubled over the past ten years from 905 in 2000 to 1,680 in 2010. Some of the growth has come from North America (700 in 2000 and 880 in 2010), but the bulk of this growth occurred between 2000 and 2003, after which the trend levelled off. In other continents, numbers have remained below 100 for the whole decade, though there are some suggestions that numbers are set to grow in Africa and Asia.
