What we do

The GFCF is the only organization focused solely on growing community philanthropy globally as a central pillar of people-led development. We do this in several ways:

  • By providing small grants and other supports to community philanthropy organizations.
  • By conducting, commissioning and supporting research, action-learning and writing that deepens the evidence base for community philanthropy as a strategy to #ShiftThePower.
  • By sharing what we are learning as a way to influence and participate in broader development debates.
  • By working with individual funders who want to build community power, voice and resources as a way to strengthen and sustain their programme investments overall.
