Swift Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
Most first-time grants are between $15,000 and $35,000; with exceptions for a first time grant for a particularly promising, innovative or start-up program, project or organization. Swift funds both one-time program grants as well as long-term partnerships.Swift Foundation strives to build trust through long-term partnerships and alliances with organizations. After a one-year grant Swift may consider a multi-year grant and occasionally a general support grant.
Swift Foundation focuses its work on communities outside of the United States where less funding is available. Over the next five years, Swift has identified two areas of geographic focus for funding attention at this time:
- Andes and Amazon Regions of Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru; and,
- Northwest British Columbia, Canada.
Additional focus areas may be identified based on our program strategy.
