The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to promote the conservation of natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and improve health in the developing world. They fund the following:
- (1) conservation – helping conserve viable ecosystems and protect biological diversity in developing countries and training local leaders in conservation and protection of resources, with an emphasis on technical and scientific training;
- (2) food – promoting specific sustainable agriculture practices with potential to advance science and practice in other countries and exploring innovative education and training interventions for small scale food producers and farmers; and
- (3) health – improving public health through community-based efforts that address health promotion, disease prevention, family planning, and reproductive health and increasing the understanding and treatment of tropical diseases.
The Foundation supports non-governmental organisations, civil society organisations, community-based organisations and universities and academic institutions. It favors projects that have their primary focus on research, training or technical assistance.
They fund projects in any developing country (excluding the former Soviet Union or former Eastern Bloc countries).
The average grant size is $20,000. Grants that exceed $25,000 are rarely awarded. They do not fund indirect costs and projects can only last for one year.
The Foundation has two 4-month funding cycles each year. The first begins in January and ends in May. The second begins in September and ends in December. Concept applications received by January 1 are considered for eligibility for the March 1 full proposal deadline. Grant payout for this cycle is in June. Concept applications received by July 1 are considered for eligibility for the September 1 full proposal deadline. Grant payout for this cycle is in December. Application is done online.
