Philanthropiece's Community Bank Program in Baja, Mexico, was born from local initiative to address a local need. While the purpose of the program is to provide an innovative, feasible, and effective savings and loan program, the benefits expand far beyond poverty alleviation to economic growth, education, leadership development, and community cohesion. This successful program is dependent on effective communication and trust, and has become a mechanism by which to grow limited resources for greater impact and develop lasting relationships for community change.
The Philanthropiece Foundation, through building deep and authentic relationships, empowers changemakers worldwide to co-create resilient communities. We envision a world in which all individuals realize their full potential and act on their capacity to create positive change in themselves and their communities.
