Latin America and the Caribbean

Support for philanthropists wishing to get involved with projects of public interest in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Strengthening actors in Latin America and the Caribbean in key sectors such as health, training and the economy is something that the King Baudouin Foundation contributes to, thanks to the involvement of philanthropists and donors. We support local actors, individuals and organisations that contribute to the development of their country. In order to increase our impact, we work with other partners and philanthropic organisations, through the Myriad alliance for borderless giving.

Our activities

  • we support individuals, organisations and businesses that wish to contribute to improving the living conditions of people in Latin America and the Caribbean
  • we support individuals and local organisations
  • and we allocate loans and bank guarantees to actors in civil society. 

Latin America and the Caribbean is part of the programme International
