How to Apply For Funding

We are always looking to make a positive impact on the lives of others, and one of the ways we do this is by accepting proposals to support various projects. The information provided below is aimed at providing guidance on the specific areas that the projects should be focused on. Each thematic area should have an individual proposal application form. This section will instruct you on how to complete the proposal application form. We also fund small businesses through the Micro loan fund. The Fund is available to individuals and community groups/alumni who do not have access to credit, including young people out of school. Read the article on Micro loan funding to find out how to apply.
