NGO Grants for Developing Countries
NGO Grants for Developing Countries: The Fetzer Institute is organizing a competition in which is it offering $25,000 awards to NGOs.
The objective of the competition is to recognize, celebrate, and honor the good work done by a vast array of publicservice organizations while deepening its understanding of the connection between the Fetzer mission and the broader NGO/nonprofit world.
Referred to as “What in the World are you doing?” this competition allows organizations around the world to submit entries on the work they are doing.
Whether it is feeding the hungry, building homes, teaching kids, supporting social entrepreneurs, cleaning streams and rivers, making art or embarking on one of a million other noble pursuits, NGOs are invited to tell their stories about their work leading to making the world a better place.
There are two $25,000 awards – one for the US-based nonprofit and one for an NGO outside the United States.
Entries will be featured in the Global Gallery of Love and Forgiveness — a showcase of inspiring videos from around the world. And public voting for the MOST LOVED project will determine the winner of a $5000 award given by the Fetzer Institute.
Nonprofit organizations/NGOs working for a minimum of 3 years at local, national, or international levels, as well as public/private partnerships performing public service functions on a not-for-profit basis, are eligible for submission to the award.
Fetzer is particularly looking for applications from developing countries and countries in conflict and/or transition.
