We invest in community-led approaches in Costa Rica that create opportunities in regions such as the Caribbean and southern Pacific coasts. Our grantee partners address challenges like poverty, violence, drug trafficking, and inequality. Their work increases legal employment opportunities and incomes, improves food security, and addresses environmental degradation that threatens livelihoods. They work with underserved populations, including Afro-descendants, migrants, women, and young people.
We awarded our first grant in Costa Rica in 1974. Since then, we have provided $21 million through 240 grants to local organizations.
