Request a grant
Guidelines for Requesting Grants from IMF's Civic Program
- Grant Decisions
- Guidelines for Washington Metropolitan Area applicants
- Guidelines for International applicants
Grant requests must be submitted between September 1 to November 7, of each year. Applications submitted before or after this period will not be considered.
Most donations are made by April, after the Civic Program Advisory Committee (CPAC) has reviewed grant applications and taken into account other Civic Program budgetary commitments.
Priority is given to supporting programs designed to enable persons to emerge permanently from poverty and crisis. Grants are normally given only to nonprofit organizations which are duly registered and that have established records of effective performance, reasonable administrative costs, and sound financial management (as reflected, for example, in recent audited financial statements), and that agree to report on their use of grants received from the IMF. Multiyear commitments cannot be made but organizations may reapply annually for grants.
Grants will not be given for capital projects such as construction or fundraising events, or to private individuals. Faith-based organizations that serve the poor are eligible to apply for grants provided that their services are open to all, without any religious qualification or conditions.
Guidelines for applicants in metropolitan Washington
All requests should follow the Common Grant Application Format of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG)—see their website (www.washingtongrantmakers.org) for details and advice on preparing grant applications. Please follow the prescribed order of items in the application form. Organizations that have previously received IMF grants should also attach a report evaluating the use of the grant, using the WRAG Common Report Format. Please complete the checklist form and include it in your submission. Applicants should provide e-mails and telephone numbers for three references. If no such person is available, they should provide the name of a donor organization from which they have received funds. Applications and attachments should be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If they cannot be submitted in electronic form, mail one copy of each item to Civic Program Advisory Committee, Room HQ1-12-618, International Monetary Fund, 700 19th Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20431.
