Groups that operate within the Foundation’s focus areas; such groups must be registered with the CAC, or in the state where they are working. They could be NGOs, CBOs, youth groups, women’s cooperatives, etc.
The Foundation supports work in four (4) main areas:
Deadlines are in place to ensure that proposals and projects are time bound; the Foundation also works within these timelines. They are not given for the sake of it but they guide the activities of the Foundation.
In each Call for Proposals, the Foundation specifies a time-frame. The applications go through a series of reviews and the organizations will be informed once decisions are made on their application based on this time-frame.
Applications will be reviewed based on the merits of each proposal and the capacity to carry out these projects simultaneously and where there will be no overlap in the projects or the project personnel.
Yes. Each application will be reviewed independently and should meet all the requirements for that grant cycle as stipulated in the Call for Proposals.
Yes. If the main activities fit into the focus areas of the Foundation, and meet all other funding criteria as stipulated in the Call.
Each Call for Proposals comes with a budget template that guides prospective applicants.
Each Call for Proposal stipulates the respective grant sizes.
No. The Foundation will only fund according to the sizes stipulated in the Call.
The answer is YES on two levels: First, for sustainability and then, to know other funding partners. It increases your chances of being funded if you have other funders but even if you do not have other sources, the Foundation will still consider your application based on its merits and adherence to the guidelines in the Call.
