Community-based philanthropy is a growing field in Latin America and the Caribbean. Asociación Fondo Comunitario Monteverde para el Desarrollo Sostenible (FCM) facilitates partnerships and philanthropy initiatives that support community-based development programs.

FCM’s activities further actions that make more resources available to communities seeking to address their own development needs.
