Calls by impact funders

When you are looking for grant funding, we are here to support you. We have first-hand knowledge of grant opportunities that match your case and we can build on a strong track record of successful proposals. 

  • Grants  for private sector investment in developing countries usually cover only part of a project budget and require a substantial cash and/or in-kind contribution. In case of development banks, grants are often tied and subject to their provision of a loan.
  • Grant programmes typically target innovative and scalable projects with a high potential payoff in terms of the programmes development goals. Grant programmes are generally organised as competitions that generally attract far more entries than can be funded.
  • Grant funding is financially attractive but comes with strict performance, reporting and accountability conditions. We provide support to help you comply with these requirements.

Only a selection of grant programmes is presented on our website. Contact us for more information!
