International country outside of the USA, Israel and Canada.
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofits for work in developing countries that furthers schooling for girls and young women. Funding is intended to support girls in elementary and secondary schools. Funding is available for two types of grants: The Girls' Education Community Grant and the Girls' Education Development Grant.
Girls' Education Community Grant: The Foundation will consider projects that contribute to a girl’s success in primary and secondary education and facilitate her access to the tools and opportunities to become a participatory and engaged member of her society. Programs must demonstrate a specific approach to supporting girls and provide unique programs that target girls specifically as part of the organization’s approach to the community in which it works.
Girls' Education Development Grant: The Foundation intends to support a project (or projects) that utilize holistic support to girls to develop their self-awareness, voice, and knowledge in order to equip them to participate fully in decision making in their families, communities, and countries. Projects may focus on girls in primary or secondary-level schooling. Projects can propose activities not directly tied to a formal educational system, but the activity must demonstrate that it supports a girl’s success in obtaining skills that will help her to succeed and become an active, educated, and engaged member of her society.
Activities must demonstrate a specific approach to supporting girls. If a project supports boys and girls there must be specific activities, initiatives, and methods outlined in the proposal to address the unique challenges that girls face. Program ideas must fit into at least one of the following categories:
- Projects that are part of a larger program implemented by the grantee or that can expand or complement other initiatives in the country.
- Activities that are pilot projects, one-off efforts, or new initiatives that may test new approaches, work in new areas, or implement new techniques.
- Projects that work in post-conflict or transitional environments with at-risk girls and young women to provide structure, support, and opportunities so they are better positioned and prepared to engage as their communities rebuild.
Estimated Size of Grant:
- Girls' Education Community Grant: Grants cannot exceed 12 months.
- Girls' Education Development Grant: Two-year project
