Type of project: Whole Planet Foundation is seeking to fund organisations working across four key areas: Economic Opportunity; Resilient Farmer; Food Security and Energy & Water. The Foundation projects must target very vulnerable segments, including people living near the poverty line and excluded from financial systems. Preference will be given to organizations serving rural and financially vulnerable farmers, with access to less than 3 hectares, living near the poverty line. The Foundation constantly reviews the most impactful way funds can be spent. If your organization has an innovative and data-backed approach that is not described above but nonetheless helps people living in poverty to generate income, please apply.
Eligibility: Organizations that may apply include socially focused Microfinance Institutions, social enterprises, nonprofit organizations, and cooperatives.
Grant size: Grant or local currency loans with 0% interest. New projects can range between $50,000 – $500,000. Typical first projects provide partners with $300,000, over 3 years.
Closing date: 15 December
