The Global Fund for Children is Accepting Letters of Intent to Support Vulnerable Children and Youth

The Global Fund for Children supports organizations based on their demonstrated potential to produce sustainable improvement in the lives of vulnerable children and youth and to serve as a resource or model for other organizations.

Organizations and grantee partners must focus on the most vulnerable populations, or the children of “the last mile”-those who are economically and socially outside the reach of mainstream services and support, including street children, child laborers, AIDs orphans, sex workers, hard-to reach rural populations, and other vulnerable or marginalized groups. Priority will be given to organizations that engage children and youth as active participants in their own growth and development, rather than as passive recipients of services.

Criteria:

•Appropriate size and stage of development: Prospective grantee partner’s annual budget should not exceed $200,000. In most cases, new grantee partners have budgets in the $25,000 to $75,000 range. The aim is to identify organizations at a relatively early stage of development. 

•Direct involvement with children and youth: Perspective grantee partners must work directly with children and youth. Foundation does not support groups engaged exclusively in advocacy or research.

•Capable management: Grantee partners must have systems and processes for ensuring responsible management of funds. At a minimum, an organization must have basic accounting and reporting systems as well as phone and email access.

•Local Leadership: Grantee partners must be led by individuals who live and work in the community. We prioritize organizations whose leaders were born and raised in the community they serve.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: All applicant organizations or sponsoring agencies must be exempt from federal taxation under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). If the political context makes legal registration unfeasible, the organization must demonstrate nonprofit equivalency . There is no start-up funding for the creation of a new organization.
