1) Objective

The Lyford Cay Foundations are dedicated to enhancing community development in The Bahamas through transformative learning opportunities. As a key grant-making organization in the country, their focus is on investing in initiatives that support education and skill development across various sectors including the arts, sports, environmental awareness, health, and economic and human resource development. Their programs are tailored to empower Bahamian children, young adults, families, and communities, especially those who are most in need.

The Foundations provide financial assistance to Bahamian non-profits, promoting both traditional and diverse educational experiences. A significant contribution of the Foundations includes a $4 million donation to the University of The Bahamas’ Harry C. Moore Library. Their approach extends beyond mere financial support, aiming for a lasting and sustainable impact in the community.

2) Eligibility

Eligibility for the grants is restricted to non-profit organizations registered in The Bahamas. The projects seeking grants must take place within The Bahamas and align with the mission of the Lyford Cay Foundations. Additionally, organizations receiving grants are required to provide a report detailing the use and impact of the funds.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Bahamas.

4) Budget

The grant amounts typically range from $5,000 to $10,000. In exceptional cases, larger grants of up to $25,000 may be awarded.

5) Application

The grant application process is conducted entirely online and begins with an eligibility quiz. Applicants are required to submit detailed information about their organization, including its legal status, history, a proposal for the project seeking funding, the organization’s budget for the past two years, a list of major supporters and contributors, and recent financial statements. The applications are reviewed three times a year – in April, June, and November – by the Programme Director and the Board of Directors. The review process may also involve additional due diligence steps such as site visits and interviews.
