DEADLINE: MARCH 9
The Commonwealth Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a Special Grants Initiative for Civil Society Organisations and Commonwealth Associations in partnership with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) to undertake strategic and innovative projects that will promote the Commonwealth theme for 2012, “Connecting Cultures”.
The Commonwealth Foundation’s mission is to strengthen civil society organisations across the Commonwealth as they promote democracy, advance sustainable development and foster inter-cultural understanding. To deliver this mission the Foundation gives grants to promote dialogue, exchanges, and partnerships between Commonwealth peoples.
The “Connecting Cultures” Special Grants Initiative complements the existing Commonwealth Foundation’s programmes and grants and aims to create deeper understanding between different cultures within the Commonwealth.
The Commonwealth Foundation invites applicants to submit proposals exploring the connections between Diaspora groups across a number of different countries, for projects up to a total of £25,000.
Deadline for applications is 9 March 2012 (5.30 pm GMT).
All details can be found on the Commonwealth website.
