If you have been invited to submit a proposal by RBF staff, these guidelines and documents can assist you.

If you have not been asked to provide a proposal, but are interested in applying for a grant, go to Grant Opportunities to learn more about our grantmaking approach.

Proposals will be reviewed by the program staff as well as by an internal review team for programmatic fit, organizational capacity, and legal and anti-terrorism compliance.

Prospective grantee organizations in the United States must either be tax-exempt or seeking support for a project that would qualify as educational or charitable. Foreign organizations must satisfy an RBF determination that they would qualify, if incorporated in the United States, as tax-exempt or that the project for which support is sought would qualify in the United States as educational or charitable.

While the approval process is generally completed within three months, the exact timeline may vary. Staff will be in touch with you throughout the process.

If you are a current grantee, these guidelines can help you manage your grant.

Grantees are required to submit narrative and financial reports at specified intervals during the grant as well as at its conclusion. Grant reports become part of the Fund's permanent records.
