The Small Grants Program is a unique, Thimphu-led program that supports a diverse range of initiatives with a shorter timeframe and a smaller budget for immediate and emerging needs. This program supports local projects to enhance the Foundation’s relationships with partners as well as ad-hoc programs of interest having limited time for fundraising. It also provides a platform to explore possibilities of venturing into new long-term core programs for the Foundation. Small Grants enable the Foundation to support programs beyond our core program areas.
Small Grants’ support typically ranges from $5,000 to $15,000 per grant. It enables the Foundation to support a greater number of programs with the funds available. The Foundation annually supports about three to four projects through this funding. The first small grant was launched in 2014.
Small Grants cover diverse topics with a GNH focus.
Small Grants amounts typically range between $5,000 and $15,000 USD.
The Small Grants program was founded in 2014 as a Thimphu-led initiative.
