Survey: Next steps for the Community Foundation Atlas

Posted By WINGS, Friday, December 4, 2015

The Community Foundation Atlas has been live for just over a year, and at this point we are considering what a next iteration of the Atlas might look like. Your views are valuable as we work to improve the Atlas as a resource for, and about, the field. We are particularly curious to hear what you would like the Atlas to do for you in the future, and whether you would want to contribute to its ongoing development.

We would appreciate hearing your views through this short survey, which has been designed with brevity in mind and should take you no longer than seven minutes to complete. All views collected in the survey will be considered confidential, individuals will not be identified in any report. Thank you in advance for your time, and we look forward to hearing your views!

Take the brief survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CommFoundAtlas

New information portal for giving circles in Asia

Posted By WINGS, Friday, October 30, 2015

GivingCircles.asia is now live!

What is a Giving Circle? Put very simply a giving circle is a group of individuals who pool their money and collectively decide on donating to a particular non-profit organization. Some giving circles are self-managed, whose members evaluate potential non-profits and administer grants. Other circles, especially larger ones, employ professional staff for day-to-day grant management. Most circles encourage their members to contribute time and skills as well as money to the organisations being supported. Giving circles usually offer grants to support non-profits, but others use loans or equity funding to invest in social enterprises.

See case studies and resources, and start a giving circle of your own today at givingcircles.asia. Read our special feature with Giving Circles Asia founder Rob John here.

Survey: What are foundations doing in response to the refugee crisis?

Posted By WINGS, Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Mapping the philanthropic response to the refugee crisis: contribute to getting a better picture and understanding of what we are all doing.

The European Foundation Centre (EFC) and Alliance have joined forces to carry out a quick scan of what philanthropic actors are doing in response to the current refugee crisis. We want to make an inventory of activities, initiatives and interests in order to gain a good understanding of who is doing what in response to the current situation in Europe. Our objective is to improve awareness of what’s going on, share this with the philanthropy community, make sense of it and stimulate thinking and action on what we can do to move beyond the urgent and immediate actions required.  

Take the survey now

We believe this is an important moment to signpost the distinct role and added value philanthropy can play in such situations by taking a calm long-term view. We plan to document activities and learnings of what has worked in the field, as well as current needs in terms of information.

The European refugee crisis — how funders can help

Posted By WINGS, Monday, September 21, 2015

Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) has launched the CDP Refugee Crisis Fund

Conditions are getting worse for refugees in Western Europe. While governments wrangle with the politics and policy surrounding refugees, private funders have the ability to quickly provide help and support to people who are miles from home and arriving with little or no possessions, clothing or money. This vital support will assist the crisis that has become the defining disaster of this decade. The unprecedented movement of people around the world has created the highest number of displaced persons since World War II.

Please donate here: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/cdprefugeecrisisfund

Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s 15th September webinar, The European Refugee Crisis: How Funders Can Help, explores how the refugee crisis in Europe is closely linked to the ongoing complex humanitarian emergency in Syria; and the gap in funding, while frustrating to those responding to the crisis, leaves private donors a wide array of options to act quickly and thoughtfully.
