Simón Bolívar Foundation (SBF) has launched a new Small Grants Program to take immediate action empowering local organizations that work to lessen the suffering of individuals affected by the complex humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.
Grants will be awarded with a priority for projects with activities targeted towards children and individuals in and from Venezuela that:
- Increase access to medicine and health-care services for low-income and vulnerable individuals and communities;
- Increase capacity of medical professionals to serve and treat patients through education and support; and
- Support education and access to preventative health care and well-being initiatives inclusive of nutrition.
The Foundation estimates it will award a total amount up to $50,000 through the Small Grants Program. The majority of grant awards will be in the amount of $5,000 per year/per organization. The maximum grant award will be $20,000 per year/per organization. This maximum amount will only be awarded to one or a select few organizations.
The Foundation evaluates all proposals together with an independent volunteer community Advisory Team. The Team is composed of leaders who have in-depth knowledge and expertise in the non-profit field and/or in an area of health. The Team reviews and scores proposals using established criteria and rubric.
Proposals will be scored on their ability to achieve impact in:
- Addressing the Foundation Small Grants Program priorities
- Budget and Cost-effectiveness
- Project design/plan
- Project impact
- Innovative approach
