Commonwealth Foundation Grant 2019-2020 (Up to £200,000)

The Commonwealth Foundation is seeking applications for the Commonwealth Foundation Grant 2020!

With more than 2.3 billion citizens, the Commonwealth offers a potentially huge set of ideas for the advancement of societies. The Foundation believes in the power of stories and narration for social change and will grant grants for creative approaches that have the potential to influence public discourse.

The selection process is highly competitive and the selected projects will have been designed to undertake work that has the potential to lead to one or more results in the Foundation’s strategic logic model.

The Commonwealth Foundation program teams participate in the configuration of the call for proposals approach. An internal review process, which includes a long list of the Grant team followed by a shortlisting process that involves all teams in the program, prepares a final list of applications that are then submitted to the Grant Committee. Final decisions on which projects to support are taken by the member states represented in the Foundation’s Grant Committee.
