Country Strategy

We invest in community-led organizations in Uruguay that invest in and scale up creative approaches to development. We support local philanthropic organizations to better address the country’s development needs. With the public and private sector, we are promoting community philanthropy, strengthening civil society organizations, and mobilizing local resources for grassroots development.

We awarded our first grant in Uruguay in 1976. Since then, we have provided $19.4 million through 139 grants to local organizations.
