Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Support to civil society organizations. AKF provides support to local civil society organizations in countries where the Foundation has a presence. In some cases where there is no appropriate partner, AKF may help to create a new civil society organization, or it may manage projects directly.

APPLICATION: Interested civil society organizations should inquire with the Foundation’s office in the country where the proposal originates, or where the project is to be implemented. The AKF does not use standardized application guidelines and forms.
