New grants for community philanthropy and the environment to Turkey, Bosnia, Egypt and Nepal!

The GFCF is pleased to announce grants totalling $117,000 to 10 community foundations and community philanthropy organizations for a new programme aimed at exploring the links between community philanthropy and the environment. New grantees include the Bolu Community Foundation in Turkey, the Tuzla Community Foundation in Bosnia, the Waqfeyat al Maadi Community Foundation in Egypt and Tewa in Nepal.

This programme represents a new area of exploration for the GFCF and builds on a series of activities conducted last in year which included consultations and two pilot grants in Romania and South Africa. In addition to grants to individual organizations, the GFCF will create a peer learning network and will host at least one face-to-face meeting later this year.
