With more than 2.3 billion citizens, the Commonwealth provides a potentially huge pool of ideas for advancing societies.
The Foundation offers grants of up to £200,000 over four years in
support of innovative project ideas and approaches that seek to
strengthen the ability of civic voices to engage with governments and
that have the potential to improve governance and development outcomes
through their active participation.
The Foundation believes in the power of stories and storytelling for
social change and will award grants for creative approaches that have
the potential to influence public discourse.
The selection process is highly competitive and selected projects
will have been designed to undertake work that has the potential to lead
to one or more of the outcomes in the Foundation’s strategic logic model.
The Foundation’s programme teams are all involved in shaping the
focus of the call for proposals. An internal review process, including
long-listing by the Grants team followed by a shortlisting process
involving all programme teams, prepares a final list of applications
that is then submitted to the Grants Committee. Final decisions on which
projects to support are made by the member states represented on the
Foundation’s Grants Committee.
