The Fund targets its grantmaking toward projects in Israel and Guatemala. Israel projects should focus on promoting civil rights, social justice, and democracy. Other programs should reduce poverty, empower low-income families, advance women’s rights and sexual and reproductive health. Guatemalan projects should promote human rights and a civil society. Also of interest are projects that foster sustainable international development and trade, and those that help disadvantaged people gain self-sufficiency and control over their lives. Projects and programs that strengthen local involvement, leadership, and institutional development are of particular interest. Letters of inquiry no longer than two to three pages are requested. The board meets twice a year to consider proposals. Complete proposals must be received by March 1 for the spring grant cycle or August 1 for the fall grant cycle. Proposals for the Israel program must be received by either February 1 or July 24. Letters of inquiry or proposals may be sent via email. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
