Good morning from Berlin ...

this year community foundations from all over the world are looking to Cleveland where the community foundation concept originated 100 years ago.
Following that example, 348 community foundations ("Bürgerstiftungen") have been founded in Germany since the mid-1990s.

Aktive Bürgerschaft analyzes their development in its annual report "Community Foundations in Germany. Facts and Trends". Our recent report shows that German community foundations have proved successful in the financial crisis. They could increase their total endowments, the funds received and their grantmaking. Increasingly, donors choose community foundations as partners for their own foundations.
