If you are a not-for-profit organization keen on promoting freedom in practice, we want to hear from you.

We receive LOI’s all year round and do not have specific deadlines. Once you have submitted your LOI you will receive further information regarding the timing and next steps. Our board meetings take place in May, August, and December. The evaluation period is between 3 and 6 months.

If your project meets our funding criteria, we will contact you and extend an invitation for you to submit a full grant application for further consideration. If you are uncertain about the eligibility of your proposal, please email us at before beginning an application, or download information on our funding criteria.
