The Foundation’s flagship Open Door Grantmaking Program provides CSOs with one of the very few opportunities to be proactive in identifying and addressing local needs, developing fresh solutions and ideas to existing challenges.

Open Door Grantmaking Program is open for all types of CSOs and their projects that foster civic engagement and have the potential to be replicated either in geographic terms or across various issue areas.

Submitted projects should provide realistic solutions to specific challenges and substantiate priority of these challenges by reliable data. Proposed methodology should clearly demonstrate broad civic engagement in identifying problems, finding solutions, and advocating for and implementing changes. Submitted proposals should lead to tangible and measurable social, political, economic, and/or behavioral changes at local, regional, or national levels.
