The first community foundations in Poland were established in the late 1990s. At the beginnging they were supported by the Academy for the Development of Philanthropy in Poland, but gradually began to build their independence, which contributed to the creation of an informal network of community funds in 2000, and the Federation registered in 2009 by the National Court Register – Community Foundations in Poland (FFL). Currently, there are 15 funds associated with the FFL, covering over 50 municipalities with their activities.
