Local Communities with Global Reach Report

Last week, the Council on Foundations and Foundation Center  released a new report: “Local Communities with Global Reach: International Giving by US Community Foundations.

Here is a guest post about U.S community foundations and grantmaking abroad, by Natalie Ross, Senior Director of Global Philanthropy and Partnerships at Council on Foundations, and Lauren Bradford, Director of Global Partnerships at Foundation Center.

A word from Benjamin...

The philanthropy ecosystem, or infrastructure, is very unevenly developed in the world. It's the most striking fact from our latest report about the field, and one of the key issues discussed at WINGSForum 2017 last February.

WINGS is committed to help building a stronger ecosystem in the Global South and East. As part of this new strategic focus, we are glad to announce the organization of a Regional Meeting for Latin America and the Caribbean, co-hosted with AFE-Colombia, in Cartagena de Indias, August 30- September 2nd. It will aim to strengthen synergies among initiatives and organizations supporting philanthropy in the region, and supporting emerging infrastructure organizations.

We hope this meeting will be the first milestone in a long-term effort to strengthen the philanthropy ecosystem in the LAC region. With this long-term objective in mind, a group of WINGS members have just come together to launch a regional affinity group which will help design the Cartagena meeting and build an agenda for enhanced exchanges among philanthropy support organizations in the region.

Every month we will now have a note from Benjamin Bellegy on WINGS' ongoing activities.

View this email in your browser

Hello, WINGS Network!

WINGS would like to warmly thank everyone involved in making WINGSForum 2017 an event to be remembered – our sponsors, members, planning committee, board, staff and participants – your collaboration was the key factor for this great success!

The conference gathered 304 participants from 44 different countries and over 170 organizations working with philanthropy infrastructure – the largest WINGS gathering to date! Now more than ever we can affirm that WINGS’ soundness is derived from the collective efforts of its members and network. Read below to find more information from the Forum including WINGS programs launched, Mexico City Declaration, links to presented materials, photos of participants, and announcement of WINGSForum 2020 host organization!

Launch of Infrastructure Report

At WINGSForum 2017 in Mexico City, WINGS launched its new Infrastructure in Focus report: A New Global Picture of Organizations Serving Philanthropy, informed by  newly gathered data from WINGS members, academic institutions and foundations supporting philanthropy infrastructure. This is the only report that specifically looks at the state of philanthropy infrastructure worldwide and provides a broad picture of priorities, organizational characteristics and challenges of the field. It not only reflects on the value of philanthropy infrastructure but also on what is needed to grow and strengthen the field. Click here to read more and here to download the report.

Launch of 4Cs

How do you prove your contribution to the field? Philanthropy infrastructure organizations still struggle to have their added-value acknowledged and recognized, despite their relevant role in the support of philanthropy. That's why WINGS, DAFNE, and our members have teamed together to create the first prototype of the 4Cs- an assessment and enabling framework and tool for the field and by the field. Check out the new 4Cs area on our website to learn more!
