    Whoa! Big Funders are calling!! 

    raining dollarsGood day to you, Funds Fans!  Here’s another post that is jam packed with funding action.

    The Western Diversification Program (WDP) is the main program through which Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) makes strategic investments in initiatives that enhance and strengthen the economy of Western Canada. Project proposals for WDP are solicited via a Call for Proposals (CFP) issued up to twice per year. Projects involving all industry sectors are considered. Funding under the Western Diversification Program is available to not-for-profit organizations such as:

    • Industry associations, community and/or economic development organizations and research organizations;
    • Post-secondary institutions; and,
    • First nations as represented by their Chief and Council, Tribal Councils and Aboriginal-led not-for-profit associations and organizations.

    WD’s next Call for Proposals opens May 1, 2014 and closes May 30, 2014.

    The NIKE Foundation is dedicated to unleashing the potential of the 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty through insights-driven innovations, strategic partnership and solutions that can be scaled to enable and equip adolescent girls to realize their potential.

    The Nike Foundation has partnered with some of the most respected organizations and leaders in the development community to work toward a shared vision: that adolescent girls are embedded in – and integral to – the eradication of global poverty.

    We are seeking strong partners to realize this vision through strategic advocacy at the global and national levels.

    Funding levels:

    Global up to $250,000 for an 18-month period. Proposals should be designed to purpose and not to total budget available.

    National up to $150,000 (3-5 organizations in the range of $500,000 for an 18-month period)

    The list of activities below is not prescriptive, nor exhaustive, but provides organizations with an idea of the type of activities the Nike Foundation is considering for this initiative:

    • Developing and executing an advocacy strategy

    • Developing messages, messengers and outreach opportunities

    • Developing and producing advocacy and communications materials

    • Staff time to track, synthesize and analyze the post-2015 negotiations and to manage relationships with key influencers

    • Participation in relevant conferences, events and dialogues

    Organizations that wish to apply for funding for both RFPs may do so.   Deadline for both funding streams is May 16th, 2014.

    Calling all photographers! $25,000 Women’s Initiative Grant available 

    Alexia Foundation

    Happy Sunday, Funds Fans!  Some good news for photographers and photojournalists involved or interested in women’s rights.

    The Alexia Foundation is pleased to announce the call for entries for the 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant which will provide a $25,000 grant for a project to be produced on a significant issue involving and affecting women anywhere in the world.

    The Alexia Foundation’s main purpose is to encourage and help photojournalists create stories that drive change. While their traditional grant guidelines put no limits on the subject matter for grant proposals, a number of proposals about women’s rights in the last few years have been so powerful that they have been compelled to create a grant specifically on issues relating to women.

    Unlike the first Women’s Initiative grant, which specifically focused on abuse of women in the United States, this call for entries is open to photographers anywhere in the world and is intended to permit the photographer to produce a serious documentary photographic project encompassing any issue involving women anywhere in the world.

    Deadline: June 30th, 2014 at 2p.m. EST.

    Please share and re-tweet within interested networks.
