Apply for A Grant

We provide philanthropy. Without boundries. We support, collaborate on and initiate philanthropic projects around the world. Regardless of gender, race, or religion. If you are launching, or are involved in, a project that aims to promote cultural understanding, develop communities, empower women or enable young people, then it may be eligible for a grant.

Who Can Apply?

We extend grants to registered organizations, social and community causes, and emergency funding for disaster relief. Applications from individuals – either for personal help or cause-related – will not be considered.
