During her lifetime, Margaret A. Cargill provided Trustees with guidance to help them identify grantees that reflect her values and hopes for the Foundation. Within the Foundation’s interest areas, Margaret asked Trustees to support programs that address unmet needs; that give individuals and communities the tools to become self-sufficient; that will be sustainable after our support ends; and that build on and strengthen strong relationships within communities. She specifically favored on-the-ground programs rather than policy initiatives or endowments.
The EU is a unique economic and political partnership between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent.
The EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries who trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict.
The result was the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1958, and initially increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Since then, a huge single market has been created and continues to develop towards its full potential.
