Where we work
The Commonwealth Foundation is one of the Commonwealth’s three intergovernmental agencies, standing alongside the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth of Learning.
We are the Commonwealth’s agency for civil society; a unique, stand-alone organisation established by, funded by, and reporting to governments.
Our work spans the Commonwealth of Nations, a voluntary association of 54 countries bound together by common values, including respect for diversity, human rights, democracy and good governance.
All Commonwealth Member States are eligible to become members of the Commonwealth Foundation. Total membership stands today at 48 Member States. Associated states or overseas territories may apply for Associate Member status. Gibraltar is currently an Associate Member.
