MissionBox Philanthropic Fund: Grants for Nonprofits Supporting Immigration/Refugees Services

Deadline: 26 January 2018

The MissionBox Philanthropic Fund is offering two $1,500 (US dollars or equivalent) cash grant awards to nonprofits or charities, from anywhere in the world, that specifically contribute to the basic needs, education and/or protection of individuals and/or families who have been forced to flee their country of origin.

Applicants are only asked to provide documentation of their service delivery model, with compelling case stories. Telling your mission story is a way to both share your successful practices and make your good work visible to interested donors.
