Global Alliance for Community Philanthropy

The Global Alliance for Community Philanthropy (GACP) is a multi-donor collaborative. For the past five years, the GACP has engaged in a series of joint research and learning activities aimed at advancing the practice of community philanthropy and at influencing international development actors to better understand, support, and promote community philanthropy’s role in achieving more lasting development outcomes. GACP members include the Aga Khan Foundation, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Ford Foundation, Inter-American Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and USAID.

Fundamentally, it’s a group of donors interested in exploring how they can support strategies that strengthen local ownership, invest in solutions that will have long-term impacts, and build on assets and resources that already exist (or at least do everything in their power not to undermine them).
