Seattle International Foundation now accepting grant applications under Global Program
The Seattle International Foundation is now accepting applications under its Global Program, which provides grants to local organizations working internationally. For this round of grants, preference will be given to organizations whose work directly impacts the lives of women and girls. Organizations based outside of Washington State are not eligible to apply.
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.
