The innocent foundation’s Grant Program to help the Poorest Families feed Themselves

Deadline: 22 February 2019

The innocent foundation is looking for visionary people and organisations who are tackling hunger in simple, smart and sometimes radical ways, and in return, It will give them the funding they need to succeed.

Since the foundation started in 2004, they’ve been working towards a world of #ZeroHunger. They want to help the poorest families to feed themselves and adapt to a changing climate, building resilience for now and for the future.

Goals

They make grants all over the world to achieve two goals:

  • Goal 1: stop children dying from hunger
  • Goal 2: help the poorest families feed themselves

Funding Information

  • The Foundation normally fund between £30,000 – £50,000 per year for up to three years. In truly exceptional circumstances this could be as high as £150,000.
  • Their support is designed to take a risk on backing a proof of concept (where applicants have limited evidence), test and transition (where they expect applicants to focus on evidence-gathering) or scale up (where there’s rigorous evidence and still serious room to grow).
  • They’re happy to fund up to 100% of costs, but equally happy to co-fund.

Eligibility Criteria

  • An idea which addresses the root causes of hunger, helping the hungriest families in countries rated alarming or serious on the Global Hunger Index who are affected by climate change.
  • An innovative idea or better way of delivering a proven idea to tackle hunger and strengthen resilience to climate change. Innovation with the potential to disrupt the status quo.
  • An idea that has the potential to spread, from a small field pilot to a whole new country, region and beyond.
  • A team of changemakers, gamechangers, visionaries, go-getters and innovators, underpinned by a sound organisational vision and strategy.
  • Legally incorporated not-for-profits – applicants could be a charity, a community-based organisation, a social enterprise, or a university.

The foundation is unlikely to fund, but may consider if applicants have a good reason why:

  • Overhead costs that are over 10% – because the their experience tells them this is the standard benchmark.
  • Work set in conflict zones or fragile states – because project delivery is likely to be impacted by security concerns, and they will find it difficult to visit the project.

The foundation won’t fund (so don’t ask):

  • Core costs alone, but are happy to include these as overheads pro-rata to the project.
  • The promotion of religious or political causes, general appeals or circulars, individual sponsorship, events or conferences.

How to Apply

Applicants can apply online via given website.
