We accept grant proposals 365 days a year.

We invest in community-led development projects across Latin America and the Caribbean. We partner with local organizations that identify innovative, yet viable solutions to local development challenges—particularly in disadvantaged or excluded communities.

We do not suggest projects or identify problems ourselves. Instead we respond to project proposals sent to us by community-led organizations.

We decide which projects to fund based on merit, not sector. Our grantee partners promote more prosperous, peaceful, and democratic communities across a wide range of sectors.

We invite your organization to apply for a grant from us. To ensure we consider your application, please read through the following steps.

Step 1. Check if your organization can apply

We only support community-led projects submitted by local and grassroots organizations that are based in independent countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

You will need to show that your organization has a history of working together
