Strengthen local action
Around the world local civil society groups are creating solutions to problems they face. To suceed, they need sustainable, locally controlled financing.
Your gift will help us strengthen philanthropy in Southern Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America (including along the US-Mexico border), providing sustainable financing for local action to overcome poverty. Strong local philanthropic organizations bridge divides between sectors of the economy, between socio-economic classes and between cultural, political, ethnic, and religious groups in ways that unite rather than divide communities. Synergos increases the capacity of these institutions to support local efforts to fight poverty, improve health and education, protect the environment and address other critical local issues.
