OAK Foundation Grants. - India and other countries

Activities: Others

We consider requests for funding that meet the overall mission and goals of the Foundation. We fund a variety of time-bound projects, core costs, technical assistance and collaborative activities. Each programme has its own funding criteria, geographic scope and requirements.

We occasionally initiate our own programmes or form initiatives in our areas of interest by issuing calls for proposals on our website, or convening policymakers and practitioners to explore solutions to critical issues.

Our principles:While each programme has its own areas of focus, as a whole, we adhere to seven funding principles. These include funding initiatives that:

target root causes of problems;

are replicable either within a sector or across geographical locations;

include plans for long-term sustainability;

strive to collaborate with like-minded organisations;

demonstrate good financial and organisational management;

value the participation of people (including children) and communities; and

have secured co-funding;

Trends in our grant-making

Oak Foundation has an annual grant-making budget of more than USD 200 million and makes grants to organisations located in countries worldwide. See our recent Annual Report for more details on our grant-making.

Our grant-making has evolved over the years and in recent times we have increased:

the length and size of grants;

the number of core support grants;

support to capacity building, policy work, campaigns and new types of social movements; and

joint programming work to address issues from many different perspectives.

Funding Restrictions:We do not provide support to individuals, and do not provide funding for scholarships or tuition assistance for undergraduate or postgraduate studies. We also do not fund religious organisations for religious purposes or election campaigns.

Except in special circumstances or in Zimbabwe, we generally do not provide programme grants under USD 25,000.

Unsolicited requests for funding should be submitted through our online form. All other requests should be sent to our general email address (

Stepep 1: Review Oak Foundation's criteria for funding

Read Oak Foundation's criteria for funding,  review previous grants in our grant database and assess whether your organisation meets the general requirements of the Foundation.

Step 2: Read Programme requirements

Each programme has its own goals, geographic scope, funding restrictions and requirements for funding. Please read our programme pages for details.

Step 3: Submit a request for funding

Organisations who are interested in seeking a grant should submit a letter of enquiry through our online form.  

We will respond within three months if we require further information or if the applicant is invited to submit a formal proposal. Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests that we receive if you do not receive a reply, please assume your enquiry was not accepted.

We would be most appreciative if you do not contact the Foundation directly to discuss your request.  For initial contact, please do not telephone or visit the offices. Thank you for your understanding.
