In Latin America and the Caribbean, philanthropic institutions face a challenging context in which to do their work, including a burdensome banking system; impediments to international donations; limits on free association; onerous reporting and registration requirements; and a lack of tax incentives for charitable donations, among many other factors. At the IAF, we strengthen the ability of local philanthropic organizations to conduct effective programming with civil society institutions and unlock additional public and private resources for long-term development. Our grantee partner, the Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaking Support (WINGS), is a global network of grantmaker associations and funding organizations that connects philanthropic institutions across the region as well as provides technical assistance in organizational strengthening and capacity building to reinforce, protect, and expand the philanthropic sector in Latin America and the Caribbean.
