Grace's work is inspired by her belief that FGM survivors and perpetrators, sometimes one and the same, hold the key to ending FGM.
S.A. is bringing Indigenous and marginalized people together in their journey through the healing process in a colonized world.
Carlo believes Puerto Ricans themselves know best how to create safer futures, but they're shut out through broken systems.

Transformation Begins with Ourselves

What is Community-Led Change?
Being “community led” is an art, not a science. Because it’s primarily about relationships. It’s about working in a way that is flexible and transparent, and cultivates voluntary engagement, community trust, and ownership.
Our Community-Led Commitments
Transforming aid and philanthropy begins with transforming ourselves. To inspire fellow funders to be community led, we must become more community led ourselves.
Community-Led Disaster Response
As the threat of disasters and crises intensify around the globe, disaster philanthropy must evolve radically in order for communities and economies to thrive.
Helping You Transform Your Giving
GlobalGiving is helping donors of all shapes and sizes—whether individual givers or corporate foundations—give in a way that supports community-led change.
