The Latin America and Caribbean Affinity Group was created in 2017 before the WINGS Regional Meeting for Latin America and the Caribbean in Cartagena, Colombia in September. The purpose of the group is to provide a flexible framework of exchange for philanthropy support organizations in the region. Its first role is to gather and articulate different experiences from members, exchange relevant information and initiatives, create a space for peer-learning and promote connections within the region.
Chairs: Maria Carolina Suarez from AFE and Andrea Hanai.
The group is formed by 46 members from 22 organizations in 7 countries. The meetings happen online on a quarterly basis and the group met in person during the Cartagena Meeting in 2017 and has plans to host more in person gatherings in the future. The group presented two webinars about the context of the region about Enabling Environment and Cultures of Giving.
