The practice of community philanthropy, has witnessed a growing momentum internationally, as new forms of community solidarity models emerge at the local level. Because of their informal nature, it is difficult for some of these initiatives to grow or survive over time The global movement for community philanthropy offers a number of models for creating and sustaining community foundations which are owned and controlled from the 'bottom up.' Communities identify their own needs and objectives, and then work together to gather the needed resources internally -- whether in cash or in-kind -- to invest in the cause. This publication will shed light on this important practice and how it has contributed to more lasting and impactful results.
