Oak Foundations Joint India Programme Grants

Activities: Others

The Indian government provides safety nets for the most vulnerable but many people find it hard to access them because of social and geographical barriers. We recognise that it will take time to make these provisions readily accessible for everyone and hope to assist in this process.

In the Joint India Programme, we have five Oak Programmes that work together to address a combination of issues that affect populations with less access to resources in Jharkhand and West Bengal located in east India. Ultimately, we aim to: improve the lives of the most marginalised groups; institutionalise practices that address poverty and social injustice; and build strong organisations at the grassroots.

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 150 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
