Offer: Grants: National Endowment for Democracy
The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.
About the Grants Program
Each year NED makes direct grants to hundreds of nongovernmental groups abroad working to ensure human rights, an independent media, the rule of law and to advance other democratic goals.
We encourage applications for financial support from activist organizations in diverse situations, such as transitional countries where the goal is democratic consolidation, authoritarian countries where the goals are liberalization, and the protection of human rights.
The next proposal deadline is April 8, 2011 for consideration at the June 17 Board Meeting.
NED Core Institutes
NED also makes grants to four American partners, commonly known as the “Core Institutes,” for work abroad to foster the growth of political parties, electoral processes and institutions, free trade unions, and free markets and business organizations.
