The problems Civitates seeks to solve are complex, requiring long-term commitment to create lasting change. We select our grantees thoughtfully, consistently evaluate our progress, and adjust strategies when needed. Our resources are small compared to these challenges, so we are unable to fund all requests we receive.

Civitates generally has several funding rounds throughout the year. Requests for Proposals are published here as well as distributed through various channels. For each Request for Proposals you will find specific instructions for submitting a funding request, including information about what activities could be funded or not, the geographic scope, and frequently asked questions. Before submitting your request, please review the strategic goals and geographic focus of your interest area.

To find information about current and previous grants, please visit “our grantees” section.

Applying for a grant from Civitates does not restrict you from applying for grants from one of Civitates’ partner foundations.
