The Foundation funds research and advocacy, experimentation, scaling up of promising interventions, and exchange of knowledge and models – with the overarching goal of contributing to large-scale change in policy and practice.

Three program areas have been prioritized during the last decade because of their importance to the region. Program Areas:
> Democratic Governance
> Education
> Sustainable Resource Management.

Eligible organizations: charitable in nature, i.e., with a US 501(c)(3) tax status OR its equivalent, if the organization is located outside the U.S.
We prefer to fund institutions that are actively engaged with a broad array of stakeholders impacted by the identified challenge.

The project must be focused on the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries of Latin America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Utilize This Offer

The Foundation´s Grants program provides project funding to organizations working to improve the lives of Latin Americans, with an emphasis on support for organizations in the region.
Letter of Inquiry deadline: January 31st, at 11:59 pm EST

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests; yes, tell these storiies too... - they will enlighten and inspire your network.
