Project Description

Community philanthropy in Brazil is expanding through the efforts of small groups of committed organizations such as Instituto Comunitário Baixada Maranhense (Baixada), a community foundation in the poorest state in Brazil, Maranhão. At the IAF, we strengthen the ability of local organizations to unlock additional public and private resources for long-term development. Our grantee partner Baixada works to advance community philanthropy in the region of Baixada Maranhense in northeastern Brazil by mobilizing resources for local community organizations and projects, organizing ongoing vocational training programs, setting up testing laboratories to promote agricultural and technological innovation, and fostering networks of community organizations.
