Your organization can have a greater impact at the grassroots level in Latin America and the Caribbean. To do good, it helps to work with the right people.

Half a century of experience has shown us that, when community organizations get the resources and technical assistance they need, they can improve livelihoods in their communities—better than anyone else can.

Join forces with us to unlock new resources for grassroots groups, helping them grow markets, expand networks, and build platforms to amplify their positive social and economic impact.

Together, we can boost grassroots efforts to drive sustainable economic growth and inclusion in the countries and communities where we work. Invest in sustainable community-led development that builds livelihoods and hope.

Partnership spotlight

We partnered with the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to foster a strong community philanthropy sector in Mexico. Our partnership was one of five finalists for the 2020 P3 Impact Award, which honors leading public-private partnerships.

Benefits of partnering with us

“The IAF’s partnership with the Danone Ecosystem Fund has been pivotal for improving recyclers’ living standards and working conditions in 35 cities in Argentina. We are proud to work with them.”

—Eric Soubeiran, Danone Ecosystem Fund CEO

Types of Partnerships

We partner with public and private entities that seek to deliver social, environmental, and economic value. This includes corporations, corporate or philanthropic foundations, nonprofits, universities, and others.

  • Co-funding partnerships: Co-design and co-invest in delivering social and economic impact for specific communities or groups.
  • Programmatic partnerships: Combine our knowledge, expertise, and networks with your own to expand our mutual reach and accomplish aligned goals.
  • Donations: Invest in our global mission or target your organization’s support to a particular initiative, country, or region.

Partnering for Disaster Recovery and Resilience

Is your organization looking to help Latin American and Caribbean communities rebuild and restart local economies after a disaster?

In our experience, local grassroots organizations are the best and sometimes only organizations to address their communities’ immediate and long-term needs after a crisis. Our Partnership for Disaster Recovery and Resilience lets you invest directly in recovery efforts by these organizations, even if you have limited grantmaking capacity or a limited footprint in the affected areas.

With our vast network of local partners, agile funding model, and 50+ years of experience, we know how to quickly direct financial and technical resources to where they’ll have the most impact. After the 2017 earthquakes in Mexico, we partnered with the C.S. Mott Foundation and several U.S. and Mexican foundations and nonprofits to mobilize $4.1 million to support reconstruction in affected communities via partnerships with 40 community philanthropy organizations.

Currently, we are supporting the medium-term recovery and long-term resilience efforts in the communities most severely impacted by Hurricanes Eta and Iota, which hit Central America and Southern Mexico in November 2020.

We welcome other funders to partner with us.
