Grant Guidelines

Swift Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.

New grantees may apply for one-year grants for program support. Most first-time grants are between $15,000 and $35,000; with exceptions for a first-time grant for a particularly promising, innovative or start-up program, project or organization. Swift funds both one-time program grants as well as long-term partnerships.

Swift Foundation strives to build trust through long-term partnerships and alliances with organizations. After a one-year grant Swift may consider a multi-year grant and occasionally a general support grant.

Swift Foundation focuses its work on communities outside of the United States where less funding is available. Over the next five years (2012-2016), Swift has identified two areas of geographic focus for funding attention:

  • Andes and Amazon Regions of Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru; and,
  • Northwest British Columbia, Canada.

Additional focus areas may be identified based on our program strategy.

    Swift Foundation is doing a great job in supporting innovative initiatives from communities and brings it into fore that otherwise would have gone un noticed. Keep the great work you are doing.

    Iam writing from Malawi on behalf of Titani Rural Youth Support Organisation(TRYSO) and would like to enquire if you do support organisations like ours from Malawi. TRYSO works to address issues affecting youth, children and women in areas of education, health, Agriculture, Human Rights and Good Governance
