general Operating Support
"Keep the lights on" funding. General operating support grants are not restricted to a specific project or program within an organization, but instead intended to support the organization as a whole.
Capacity Building Support
Funds specifically intended to help an organization expand its capacity by expanding staff, investing in training opportunities, hiring outside consultants, or encourage collaboration between multiple organizations working in the same space.
project- or Program Specific grants
Grants to support a specific project within an organization or one particular program within a larger organization.
single-Year and Multi-Year Commitments
Multi-year grants will be made by invitation only, though we welcome unsolicited applications for one-year grants from organizations who meet our eligibility requirements.
When applying for a grant, you will be asked to submit your application within one of these categories. If you're uncertain which makes the most sense for your specific request, please contact our Program Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance.
