FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund

What is the FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund?

The Fondo ADELANTE Puerto Rico  is a fund that supports key non-profit institutions that are working to achieve a better Puerto Rico in the short, medium and long term. Initially, ADELANTE Puerto Rico provided rapid response grants to organizations assisting communities affected by the devastating hurricanes Irma and Maria. Once the immediate needs of affected populations are stabilized, the Fund will continue to support organizations to ensure the resilience of the most vulnerable and their continued contribution to Puerto Rico. We will also support work on issues of government transparency, inequality, and community economic development. Our vision is to move FORWARD expeditiously, towards a better Puerto Rico.

Who creates the FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund?

The Fondo ADELANTE Puerto Rico was created by La Red de Fundaciones de Puerto Rico (the Puerto Rico Funders Network). The Network is made up of longstanding and prestigious Puerto Rican foundations with extensive experience in strategic grantmaking and deep involvement in the nonprofit sector. 

Why was the FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund created?

Puerto Rico confronts a dual challenge that especially affects the country’s most vulnerable populations. The most recent challenge has been the devastation created by hurricanes Maria and Irma. But these hurricanes hit at a time when the island is already facing a huge economic crisis. The storms have left many homeless, with no sources of water, electricity, food, medicine or fuel. The economic crisis has left many people without work, health insurance, money or adequate government services. Community-based non-profit organizations have been the first to respond to these crises by documenting impacts, fostering artistic expression, advocating for the most vulnerable, creating innovative initiatives, mobilizing volunteers and addressing basic needs. As organizations deeply rooted in vulnerable communities, their proximity and knowledge enable them to quickly and efficiently address the physical, cultural and emotional needs of communities, even in remote places.
