COMMUNITY BUILDING THROUGH TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING!

We offer grants to the local non-profit community who work tirelessly to help those most in need throughout The Bahamas.

As one of the few grant making organisations in the country, we invest in initiatives that provide access to traditional and diverse opportunities for learning in the arts, sports, environmental awareness, health-related issues and economic and human resource development.

Grants are awarded through an application process. Non-profits have three opportunities to apply for support each year. Grants vary in amount and can range up to $25,000.

Organisations must provide details on their project or programme, the purpose of the grant and documentation related to their structure, governance and finances. Successful organisations must report on the execution and impact of the funded project.
