Given that we have a limited grant budget that does not change much from year to year and that we believe in supporting grantees over a long time, we do not have the flexibility to fund many new grantees. Therefore, we do not accept unsolicited proposals.
At the same time, we remain open to new ideas and approaches that meet our strategic grantmaking goals and try to explore these new ideas in a way that is mindful of the expectations about funding that these conversations can raise. Interested grantseekers may submit an email inquiry, not to exceed one page, to email@example.com. Only inquiries that clearly support a particular subprogram strategy and fall within the subprogram’s geographic priorities will be considered. Every attempt is made to review and respond to inquiries within 4-6 weeks.
While we focus on grants to nongovernmental organizations and networks that allow us to partner with government and donors, we generally do not fund governmental institutions.
