Global Program

The Seattle International Foundation operates a Global Program (small grants for local organizations) designed to provide resources to non-profits based in the Puget Sound region with a global reach. The Foundation is interested in development projects in all regions of the world. Preference will be given to organizations based in the greater Puget Sound region and organizations based outside of Washington State are not eligible. Please review our our 2008, 2009, and 2010 grantee portfolios for more information.

The program is open to 501(c) 3 organizations, or those with fiscal sponsorship, with an annual organizational or project budget of less than $2 million. The program seeks to support organizations launching new projects, or working to establish or expand an international project or program. Organizations may request general operating support or project support, and the maximum grant award is generally $15,000. There are two rounds annually for this program.

As of September 10, 2010, the second round of 2010 is now closed. The next round of funding for the Global Program will open early 2011. For future reference, organizations can download the Global Program grant application by clicking here.
