When making grants, we look for effective organizations, original thinking and relevance of the proposal to the development of the private sector.

Our grant-making process presumes collaborative planning between the ABF and its grantees. Therefore, prospective applicants are advised not to submit a full proposal but rather to begin by sending a short letter not to exceed two pages that briefly presents their organization, the purpose, objective, and duration of their project, as well as the total amount of their request. We recommend that you fill in the Online Grant Inquiry Form that you can find on this page.

Applications are considered throughout the year. Please, note that only if our review of the initial inquiry is favorable, the relevant program director will contact you to discuss your ideas in greater detail and help shape a full proposal. Normally, applicants may expect to receive an indication within 1 month if their proposals will be considered further. 

Thank you for your understanding that, due to the large volume of inquires that we receive, we are unable to respond to all applicants.

If your proposal is to be considered for a grant, the approval process - which includes research, meetings, site visits, grant negotiations, legal review and presentation of the grant for approval - is generally completed within one month but can take longer.

Grant inquiry letters should be sent, by e-mail,
