The Seattle International Foundation Announces its First Global Program Grantmaking Round of 2010

The Seattle International Foundation is now accepting applications for its Global Program. The goal of the Global Program is to support and foster local organizations working internationally. The Foundation is interested in development projects in all regions of the world, although it has a special interest in Central America. Preference will be given to organizations based in the greater Puget Sound region and organizations based outside of Washington State are not eligible.

The program is open to 501(c)3 organizations, or those with fiscal sponsorship, 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.

If your organization applied previously and was not awarded a grant, you are eligible to reapply. Organizations may download either a Word or PDF version of the Seattle International Foundation’s Global Program application:

Applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2010 or hand delivered to the office by 6 pm on March 15, 2010. Grant recipients will be announced late Spring 2010. Applications may not be submitted electronically. Feel free to include any additional materials or documents to strengthen your application. Completed applications and additional required materials should be sent to:
