We make grants primarily through relationship building with potential grantees. We also accept proposals from qualified public entities, section 80-G organizations (India), or 501(c)(3) charities (US). The Foundation neither lends nor grants money to individuals.
While we are eager to fund activities that make the world a happier, healthier, and more equal place:
- We do not make grants or loans to individuals.
- We do not make loans or investments to private businesses.
- We do not fund political activities.
- We do not fund religious activities or programs serving specific religious groups or denominations. However, faith-based organizations may submit grant applications if a project falls within our areas of interest.
Application Requirements and Review Process
The Foundation strives to be responsive to the needs of all eligible organizations. Grant applications are accepted throughout the year. Applicants will be notified whether their grant request has been approved within two (2) months of application. Each organization is limited to one application within a twelve-month period.
