The GFCF is pleased to announce five new grants under its Youth Civic Engagement (YCE) and Asia Programmes. Naseej is a young regional foundation – based in Jordan and working across the Arab region – which works with youth and uses an asset-based approach. The GFCF grant will support a strategic planning process for the foundation. Grant supplements have also been awarded to Fundación Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte (Mexico) and the Foundation for Social Transformation (India) to provide ongoing support to both organizations’ youth philanthropy and development programmes.
Under the Asia programme, a grant to the South Asia Women’s Fund (SAWF) will support SAWF’s efforts to build a local donor constituency for social justice grantmaking. And in Vietnam, the GFCF grant will support the LIN Center for Community Development community grantmaking and local philanthropy development work.
