Poverty Freedom Grant 04

Poverty & Freedom Grant

In many countries around the world, the prosperity generated by enterprise and entrepreneurship is limited by bad economic policies. At Atlas Network, we believe think tanks can be catalysts for policy reforms that ensure the economic rights that reduce poverty and promote prosperity. That is why we are offering financial support to partner organizations with ambitious but achievable plans to improve economic opportunities for low-income populations by changing the public policy and regulatory environment in their countries. There is no specific policy reform or issue area required to be approved for a grant. We encourage applicants to identify viable and worthwhile reforms that represent local priorities and local vision for change.

Successful applicants will demonstrate a strategic understanding of how to optimize and execute research, marketing, and advocacy plans for demonstrable change.

We suggest a request range of $20,000-$35,000, though other amounts may be entertained. Both international and United States partners are eligible. Matching preferred. Atlas Network is not endowed and accepts no government funding, so our capacity to give is restricted by our own fundraising success.

As part of the Dignity Unbound project, Atlas Network invites our partners to apply for the Poverty & Freedom grants. This grant is generously sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, among others.

We favor organizations who participate in the Atlas Network Academy and, in particular, those who have completed Think Tank Fundamentals and Think Tank Theory & Practice, which are both free online courses offered within the Academy.

Our 2022 deadlines will be February 15, May 15, August 15, and November 15.
