In October 1998, thirty-nine people from twelve countries met in Miami Beach, Florida. They represented organizations that support community foundations around the world. The meeting was a wonderful success. Delegates learned from each other, shared their experiences and dreams, and decided to maintain this international support network. The report of the meeting was widely circulated and extraordinarily well-received around the world.
Recently, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation provided renewed support to update the Miami report. In this document you will find the original report, preceded by new sections describing the establishment of four international working groups, the merger with the larger WINGS (Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support) network and the key elements of work ahead. The second half of this document is a description of the community foundation movement around the world. The “mapping” project – a joint initiative of the Council on Foundations and WINGS – is helping us move forward in building our international support network.
