Opportunity Details


We work with many exciting early stage social entrepreneurs, and many if not all need some financial help to get / keep going. We know there are foundations out there with funds earmarked for the type of projects we support, but we don't know who they are and often find out about opportunities once it's too late and the deadline has past.


We want to write grant applications to cover at least one year if support to 10 social startups. This equals a budget of Rs 2 million.

  • Communication


  • English
