Resumen

The aim of this report is to analyze the main characteristics, trends and challenges facing foundations in Colombia today. The importance of such an analysis stems from the fact that foundations are the main sources of private, human and financial resources used to develop their own social initiatives and foundations provide various social organizations with human and financial resources. As will be seen during this report, the contribution of foundations both in terms of economic resources, time and talent, as well as through their alliances with various development actors have been very important in Colombia.
