What topics are not included in the TVG Directory?
Health: We do not share opportunities or calls that focus solely on human health or medicine. However, we do share opportunities that focus on cross-cutting issues, e.g. the impacts of climate change to human health or improving agricultural systems through livestock resistance.
Humanitarian relief: While we do not post specific opportunities that aim to end poverty or support the lives of children, women and orphans, for example, through donations, we do, share calls for proposals that focus on improving livelihoods (e.g. agricultural education and community farming to strengthen gender equality).
Human nutrition and emergency food supply: Even though they are indirectly related to agriculture, we omit these opportunities because they are too numerous to manage and are generally available through many other platforms. Similarly, we do not include grants which support emergency food supply. Emergency feeding falls under humanitarian relief.
Victims of natural disasters: These are grants for development aid and emergency relief. They are delivered mainly through organizations focused on humanitarian and social objectives. However, we include grantmakers who fund activities to prevent and mitigate natural disasters through resource and agriculture management.
Refugee crisis: We do not include support for projects related to refugees which fall within the category of humanitarian relief. But, we do share a very few, specific opportunities related to resource management, such as water or sanitation projects for slums or refugee camps.
Religious projects: We do not share funding opportunities for specific religions. A limited number of grantmakers with some religious affiliation (e.g., Catholic Relief Services) might support projects with a focus on agriculture and livelihoods or cross-cutting subject areas.
