• Description

This is part of a two-volume publication of case studies on the work of grantmaker associations and philanthropy support organizations. Volume 1, "Case Studies of Grantmaker Associations Around the World", includes seven case studies that profile ten associations supporting grantmakers at the multinational (regional), national, or subnational level. Volume 2, "Case Studies of Organizations Supporting Community Foundations", describes the work of eight organizations that promote and support community-based philanthropy. The purpose of this volume on grantmaker associations is to share the stories of the establishment and evolution of a representative group of associations and draw lessons from their experiences that will be useful for both existing and new associations in enhancing their capacity to promote and support philanthropy.
