This is a chapter from the Foundation Building Sourcebook: A Practitioners Guide Based on Experience in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
This chapter gives some Examples of how local foundations have raised resources from international foundations
- A Partnership with the Danielle Agostino Foundation: Vamos Foundation, Mexico
- Core Funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation: Foundation For Community Development, Mozambique
- Successful proposals focus on initiatives that fit the objectives of both foundations.
- Partnerships to jointly tackle common objectives can build on the strengths of both organizations.
- Different laws, customs, expectations and policies may limit the possible support from foundations with international programs and the level of funding available.
- Managing a successful relationship required good capacity in, at least, the following areas: program design and execution, financial management and accounting, and communications.
- Support coming from foundations with international grantmaking programs might be developed for programs, institutional development or endowment.
Funding for the Sourcebook was provided by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, with additional support from Aga Khan Foundation Canada, the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium, Avina, Inc., the Ford Foundation and the Open Society Institute.
