Closing Date:  Friday, 31 July 2015


We invite applications for grants from any individual or organization in thirteen eligible southern African countries to support work that advances or defends the human rights, wellbeing, and social inclusion of homosexual and bisexual men and women, as well as transgender and intersex people.

Grant applications will be accepted in all four grant categories listed above.

The thirteen eligible countries from which grant applications will be accepted are Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Grant allocations will be made in a two-step process.

The first step to apply for a grant is to read the guidelines for the submission of grant concept notes (Guideline G3) that you can download on this page, and then submit a concept proposal. Your concept proposal must be submitted in the format provided by the Other Foundation (Form G1), which you can also download on this page.

All the concept proposals received will be assessed by an independent panel made up of peers of grant applicants. These peer reviewers will recommend the concept proposals that will be taken to the second stage of the grant making process.

In the second stage of the grant making process, the recommended applicants will be invited to develop a full grant proposal for submission to the Other Foundation’s board of trustees for funding. The board of trustees will make the final decision about grant allocations.
