G2C
is
an
organization whose
mission is to increase the flow
of international donations and
provide enduring, scalable and
sustainable solutions to Colombia’s
most vulnerable populations.
OUR ADDED VALUE
With ten years of experience in the Colombian social sector, Give To Colombia (G2C) has become an intelligence
hub for non-profit entities, ensuring that our donors get the most return for their investment.
Based in the United States, and with offices in Colombia, it creates, promotes and facilitates alliances between
international donors and Colombian grassroots organizations, optimizing the social impact of private and
institutional donors’ investments in the social sector.
To do so, Give To Colombia selects and partners with local foundations to implement high social impact projects,
ensuring that they comply with the donors’ standards of reporting, accountability and effectiveness.
Our broad range of projects, access to any Colombian sector, and versatile model as an umbrella organization,
places us among the most knowledgeable of Colombian NGOs. Some of our partners include Levi Strauss
Foundation, Inter-American Development Bank, Goldman, Sachs & Co., SABMiller, Diageo, Cisco Systems,
and Motorola Solutions Foundation, among others.
INTERVIEW WITH PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER
ANGELA MARIA TAFUR
The following interview was inspired by audience questions at conferences where G2C has been
invited to share its model, including a session at the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2010.
G2C is a philanthropic model conceived to deliver high social impact through
international partnership building. In your experience, what are the key elements
of successful partnership building in the context of a country like Colombia?
Our model has been successful because we are not merely an intermediary,
but we also advise our donors on how to give effectively so their donations can
create a lasting impact. We do this by articulating partnerships, leveraging
social investments, and monitoring their execution on the ground. First, G2C acts
as a grant-seeking platform based in the U.S. for not only the Colombian social
sector (mainly NGOs), but also the private sector as is the case with subsidiaries
of multinational corporations in Colombia who wish to access corporate funding
from their global foundations. We can also act as a grant-making platform for
donors that wish to create a special grant management fund. For example, from
2006 until 2011 we managed an open-call process for The McMillan Children’s
Foundation. Additionally, we treat our donors as dynamic and engaged social
investors. We have had employees from Motorola, Dell, Citibank and Merrill
Lynch teaching skills and acting as mentors to the beneficiaries of our projects.
Finally, we have created partnerships with the public sector that have allowed us
to leverage local resources in the form of matching contributions for our projects.
What are the most important challenges for philanthropy in Latin America?
Challenges! There are many, but I would emphasize the following three: lagging philanthropy, ineffective giving,
and lack of collaborative willingness. Regarding the first, the fact is that Latin Americans are perceived even by
themselves as takers, not givers. High-income individuals devote a minimal percentage of their financial assets
to charity, which is a pity because in the last three years, wealth in the region has increased more than in any
other part of the world. The next problem is ineffective giving. The few that give do not do it in a very effective
way. To combat this, Give To Colombia’s model tries to transform a culture of charity to one of impact giving by
treating donors as social investors with the capacity for long-term strategic social interventions. Finally, there have
been many obstacles on the path to instilling a sense of collaboration amongst donors. Persuading corporations
to join others to leverage their impact and forget about how their logo looks beside their competitor is no easy
task. However, we have had some successes in our campaign to prove that impact is not achieved “solo.” What do you consider to be the next steps in creating a culture of philanthropy and collaboration in the Americas?
As I see it, the next steps are: speaking up, creating self-defined benchmarks, understanding global trends,
promoting local capacity, investing in operations, and taking risks. By speaking up I mean that we need a stronger
communication strategy to promote social needs, challenges, and opportunities for the region in order to increase
cross-border collaboration. We need to highlight the benefits for social investors in Latin America. It is also
necessary to create self-defined benchmarks on a regional and national level, which can be used to illustrate the
progress and impact achieved by the social sector. Philanthropy, as any other field, is constantly changing, so it is important that NGOs be in tune with global trends,
and learn the best practices of other countries as well as their mistakes. We should strongly invest in NGO capacity
building to transform the scale and complexity of the initiatives that can be undertaken and develop a culture of
responsibility that is founded on innovation, collaboration and sustainability. In order to effectively channel and
extend the reach of every investment, organizations must be strengthened to remain flexible to the responses and
needs of its global stakeholders. Strengthening the operational capacity of vehicles like Give To Colombia is as
important as supporting the social initiatives and NGOs they represent. Transforming a culture of charity to one
of impact investing means taking risks and making changes. Leaders of the public and private sector in Latin
America will need to be aware of these risks and make the necessary adjustments. They must also be aware that
true philanthropy requires hard work; it is not about writing a check at the end of the month, but actually developing
investment strategies, impact measurements and evaluations.

65 SOLDIERS INJURED IN COMBAT
BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA
For over 50 years, Colombia has suffered an internal conflict that has caused a great deal of suffering and grief
for its inhabitants. Criminal groups have carried out many illicit terrorist acts, which affect not only the general
public, but also the members of the armed forces and their families. Despite improvements in security and a
reduction in violence, the number of Colombian soldiers injured in 2013 by just landmines was 368.
Colombian soldiers do not have a high level of education and those injured in combat face an even bigger
challenge to reincorporate into the labor market. These soldiers have the excruciating task of starting over in
order to produce for themselves and their families.
This project aims to overcome these issues by providing disabled soldiers injured in combat with access to
basic and professional education. Access to education is a determining factor in the inclusion of disabled
individuals in society: it increases their employability and prepares them to enter the formal work force. In partnership with the Corporación Matamoros, the project provides scholarships for 65 young men affected
by the Colombian armed conflict. Priority was given to soldiers that were affected by landmines. A total of 65
beneficiaries were selected and began their studies in January and July 2013.

Fundación Ecoprogreso is an organization which protects the northern part of Ciénaga de la Virgen y Ciénaga
Juan Polo in the city of Cartagena. The lagoon and its associated ecological structure harbor over 200 species
of plants, 19 species of amphibians, 39 reptiles, 150 species of birds, and 17 mammal species. The biggest
threat facing the mangrove ecosystem is the filling of the wetland driven by urban growth.
This project included a donation to support Ecoprogreso’s Environmental Education program, which includes
Scouts Guardianes, an environmental youth group in the Afro-Colombian fisherman village of La Boquilla, and
La Escuela Vive el Mangle, a program which works to raise environmental awareness in nearby schools. The
project has raised environmental awareness within the community, supporting the development of empowered

Testimony:
“When I first got to Proyecto de Vida I was totally lost. I was full of fear, frustration, hatred, resentment, and above all, I had no desire
to continue living. Today, that is all part of the past, because thanks to [the donor], Give To Colombia, Proyecto de Vida, the staff, my
therapists, and all those who were part of my recovery, I have been granted another chance to live my life. Here, I was able to get to know
the beautiful person I had inside all along, today I truly know myself, I have dreams, goals, projects; today I am calm, happy, relaxed,
and most importantly, I don’t want to die, I want to live my life to the maximum, and I know that there are many beautiful things left to live.”

PROYECTO DE VIDA
DONOR: ANONYMOUS
LOCAL ALLY: CAD PROYECTO DE VIDA
BENEFICIARIES: 11 PATIENTS
LOCATION: BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA
The Center for Addictions “Proyecto de Vida” was born from a group of friends’ growing concern for the
alarming rate of increase in substance abuse victims in Colombia. The Center offers in-house treatment with a
clinical- psychological focus based on Narcotics Anonymous’ Twelve-step program. Today, the Center houses
15 patients at a time and has helped more than 400 patients to recover and lead better lives.
This project covers the cost of six months of treatment for 11 recovering addicts of substance-abuse, gambling,
and/or co-dependence, who were seeking help but did not have the economic resources necessary to pay for
treatment. Treatment at the Center includes individual psychotherapy, group therapy, family therapy, painting
therapy, sports therapy, assignment of a Big Brother/Sister, autobiography writing, diary entries, medical
lectures, cinema-forum, former patient testimonials, etc. Once the treatment ends, the patient enters into a
follow-up phase as an outpatient, including a monitoring and evaluation plan with individual and group therapy,
the only condition being that the patient must remain abstinent.

In March of 2012, Give To Colombia was selected by the
Inter-American Development Bank as the Executing Agency
for the implementation of the project, “Comprehensive
Models of Access to Water and Sanitation.” The main
objective of the project is to design and implement
demand-driven and service-oriented pilot programs

access to basic water supply and sanitation services in
the poorest and most vulnerable areas of Colombia.
The project focuses on the following areas:
• Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion in Rural Schools
•
•
Sustainable Self-Supply Models for Disperse Rural Communities
Sustainable Models for the Financing of Household Connections
The principal advances in 2013 included:
• Construction of 2 sanitary batteries in the rural
zone of Magangué.
• Elaboration of the booklet “Buscando el Tesoro
de la Salud,” a methodological guide covering
hygiene, potable water, and sanitation to include
in school curriculums.
• Assessment of 32 rural schools in the department
of Magdalena.
• Design of sanitary interventions for 25 rural
schools in the department of Magdalena.

10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
For our 10 Year Anniversary, G2C held an exclusive event for 180 guests at the Ritz - Carlton, South Beach. The
night created awareness about Colombia’s needs and the funds raised were used to help us continue implementing
our misson. The event was sponsored by American Airlines, Caracol Televisión, Goldman Sachs, Diageo, SABMiller,
Shutts & Bowen, Burberry, Solé Farms, Tiffany & Co., Casa Tua, The Collection, Christie’s, the EVR Group and Carla
and Gerald Camacho-du Manoir. The evening began with a cocktail reception, followed by a private concert starring
Andres Cabas, one of Latin America’s most acclaimed contemporary musicians. Cabas entertained the guests
with a spirited performance of hits such as “Mi Bombón.” To close the concert, guests enjoyed a performance by
Jorge Villamizar, former “Bacilos” vocalist, joining Cabas in a duet of “Bonita”, one of Cabas’ most famous songs.
After the concert, guests were invited to view the “Colombia Gives Back - Art Vintage Bill Collection,” an assortment
of unique Colombian vintage bills, each transformed into a work of art or memorabilia by a top Colombian celebrity.
The pieces were part of a silent auction that offered the guests the opportunity to bid electronically throughout
the night. Following the concert, guests enjoyed an exquisite three-course dinner, during which a live auction
of luxury experiences was led by Christie’s auctioneer Steven Zick, flown in from Chicago for the event. Finally, the
soirée ended with another lively concert by a “vallenato” group performing traditional Colombian folk music.
Special thanks to these sponsors:

Transforming Philanthropy is an initiative created in 2010 that seeks to promote and facilitate collaborative and
strategic social investment among Colombia’s leading families and economic groups, build on the capacity
of the social sector, and promote the coordination of efforts between the public and private sectors and civil
society to achieve high social impact. Through regional seminars and workshops, participants explore innovative
approaches to maximize the social impact of their investments and become social investors who commit to
supporting long-term interventions and increasing the flow of strategic investments into the country’s social sector.
EVENTS
Transforming Philanthropy Academy
Year- round, Bogotá
The Academy is a new program directed towards young adults who display
an interest in expanding their knowledge of philanthropy, while also aiming

thereby having greater impact on their country and society. The program,
which consists of ten sessions within the period of one year, includes
discussion-based lectures in which participants are guided by two to three
experts in the social sector. It also includes opportunities for field trips
aimed at deepening participants’ knowledge of topics previously covered
