Global Fund For Children
The Fund supports small, community-based programs that provide education and life skills training for vulnerable and underserved children. This includes, but is not limited to, job skills, the arts, multicultural awareness, conflict resolution, human rights awareness, health education, and environmental education. The Fund focuses its grantmaking toward projects and organizations that focus on four specific issues: learning, enterprise, safety, and healthy minds and bodies. A prospective grantee’s annual budget should not exceed $200,000. Applicants must work directly with youth and children in direct service. Leaders of applicant organizations must live and work in the community that the organization serves. Funds support programs that address the most vulnerable, the children of “the last mile.” These are the children 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. A letter of inquiry form can be found on the Web site.
