Impacts historically marginalized or underserved communities.
Is organized and led by members of the target community.
This is an open, competitive process and will assess applicants on their ability to provide evidence-driven, innovative solutions that reach underserved communities. The key program requirements are:
Innovation: Grant will fund organizations that are developing potentially transformative solutions. FBB seeks to support an organization that pursues new ways to solve old problems with solutions that are more efficient, faster, increase cost effectiveness, and lead to better results for the population served and the broader community.
Evidence-driven: Organizations must utilize evidence to drive the development and implementation of their programs. Organizations are asked to provide a summary of the evidence/best practices or studies that have influenced their program design and articulate their theory of change—explain the process of change with causal links from the issue(s) they are addressing to the long-term goal(s). Organizations are asked to provide evidence of their current impact as well as how this grant will increase that impact.
FBB will disburse the first disbursement of the grant in the amount of $25,000 USD to one organization with the goal of increasing that organization’s ability to fulfil its mission.
