The Case for Transnational Work

The Case for Transnational Work: An Interim BBCA Report for Community Foundation Leaders Across the Americas

Report Cover

As philanthropic leaders, we have a unique role to play in building communities that span borders. The Building Broader Communities in the Americas (BBCA) initiative has built a network of community foundations, other foundations, nonprofits, and government partners that facilitates transnational philanthropy and improves the lives of migrants and their communities.

This report is designed to better understand the experience and process that participants have used to leverage and advance the BBCA network strategy. In this document, we present information from community foundations across the United States and Mexico that point towards transnational philanthropy as an effective approach to many of the challenges facing communities today.
