Sustainable development requires community buy-in and resources that can maintain efforts beyond those of international donors, yet many aid programs overlook community assets. At the IAF, we strengthen the ability of local philanthropic organizations to do effective programming and unlock additional public and private resources for long-term development. Our grantee partner, Rede de Fundos para Justiça Social (RFJS), is a network of community foundations committed to investing in social and economic development and to strengthening community philanthropy in Brazil. Through workshops, capacity building, and peer-to-peer exchanges, RFJS strengthens participating communities foundations that in turn support and sustain the development efforts of Brazilian civil society organizations.
