Annual Grants Call

Our competitive grants call supports civil society organisations to partner with governments and advance Commonwealth principles. Eligibility rules apply.

Grants call 2022-2023

As one of the three intergovernmental pillars of the Commonwealth, the Foundation operates within that critical space between government and the people. The Foundation works to bring the voice of civil society into all aspects of governance, supporting civil society engagement in shaping the policies and decisions that affect people’s lives.

The Foundation’s Strategic Plan 2021-2026 is strongly linked to the Commonwealth Charter and its values and aspirations, and it identifies three thematic areas of focus:

  • Health
  • Environment and climate change
  • Freedom of expression

This year’s grants call has now closed for applications.
