Global Fund for Community Foundations
A large part of the GFCF’s grantmaking is done through a closed call for applications. However, we do offer occasional open calls for concept notes and are always ready to respond to inquiries about grant opportunities.
Before submitting a concept note, please first consult the GFCF guidelines on overview and eligibility, geographic restrictions as well as selection criteria. If your organization is eligible to apply for a GFCF grant, please submit an online grant inquiry using the fields on the right-hand side of this page.
aAfter reviewing submissions, the GFCF will then determine eligibility. If the initial grant inquiry satisfies our criteria, we will send applicants a longer, online application form for completion.
Initial grant inquiries may be submitted in English, French, Spanish and Russian, but we currently accept final applications only in English.
