Marcela Rueda Gomez - Elevate Children Funders Group

This report maps current practice in philanthropic support for child- and youth-led work at the community level and offers strategic advice to donors on how to strengthen their funding modalities to achieve greater impact. It was developed with youth co-researchers through literature review, key informant interviews, focus groups, and online surveys with funders, child- and youth-led community rooted groups, and non-funders.
