The foundation provides annual grants to some 30 Commonwealth Associations of professionals. Grants are given for core expenses, and for specific activities. In addition, the Foundation makes grants to other Commonwealth organisations.
Commonwealth associations and organisations carry out a wide range of activities across the Commonwealth. They promote and facilitate the exchange of experience and knowledge; strengthen national associations; develop and maintain professional standards; and promote and provide preofessional development opportunities. They also ensure a Commonwealth dimension to global issues by addressing Commonwealth priorities, especially with regard to developing countries. These objectives are achieved through programmes of workshops, seminars and conferences; the publications of journals, magazines and newsletters; facilitation of networking; and the exchange of expertise among individuals and between national member organisations.
