The Colunga Strengthening Fund seeks to promote projects that have developed models and innovative solutions in the approach to social problems, related to poverty and social exclusion.

In 2018, the Strengthening Fund opened a special call for Biobío, due to the fact that this region has the second concentration of people living in poverty throughout the country. Of the 15 applicant organizations, 10 went through an improvement process together with Colunga, the University of Concepción, AboutNews Y SocialB, where they perfected the design and management of their programs.
