Seattle International Foundation announces call for applications under Global Program

The Seattle International Foundation is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications under the 2012 Global Program. The Global Program (small grants for local organizations) supports and fosters local organizations working internationally. SIF is interested in development projects in all regions of the world. Preference will be given to organizations based in the greater Puget Sound region and organizations based outside of Washington State are not eligible. Please review our 2008-2011 grantee portfolios for more information on past grantees.

The program is open to 501(c)3 organizations with an annual organizational or project budget of less than $2 million. The program seeks to support organizations launching new projects, or working to establish or expand an international project or program. Organizations may request general operating support or project support, and generally the maximum grant award is $15,000. Read more about our Global Program here.

To submit an application, create a user name and sign in to our online application system by visiting www.seaif.org/apply. ¬†Applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm on May 4, 2012. Grant recipients will be announced in mid-summer 2012.

If your organization applied previously and was not awarded a grant, you are eligible to reapply. If your organization was awarded a grant during Round 2 of SIF's 2011 Global Program, your organization is not eligible to apply at this time. Please inform your networks and colleagues of this opportunity. 

The Seattle International Foundation is a supporting organization of the Seattle Foundation and exists to promote global giving in Seattle and to invest in initiatives for global development. Established in 2008, SIF has awarded more than $6.5 million to over 60 organizations based in the Pacific Northwest working in over 30 countries.
