FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund
Impact of the FORWARD Fund
Filantropía Puerto Rico established partnerships for the creation of a common fund with focus areas and grantmaking policies unprecedented in the history of philanthropy in Puerto Rico. In addition, it allowed for an organized distribution of aid funds that were being channeled to the island. The Fund became the backbone that successfully guided the mission of Filantropía Puerto Rico, not only for their investment in the recovery and reconstruction of Puerto Rico but also for the design of activities that have promoted engagement and amplified the social impact in areas of equity, collaboration, transparency and social justice.
