Our Grants

We believe the most effective, sustainable and lasting solutions for the problems that Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities face should be designed, developed and implemented by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities' organizations. The projects we support address three issues: access to Public Health and Safe Water, and the balance between Humankind and Nature.

Apply for funding. Keep up with the extraordinary work of the organizations we support.

Azimuth World Foundation makes grants in support of its mission and recommends grants to the Azimuth World Foundation Donor Advisor Fund through a fair, diligent and transparent process. To determine if an international organization is eligible to receive funding, Azimuth World Foundation and the Azimuth World Foundation Donor Advisor Fund must verify that the proposed grantee either has a *"Friends of" 501(c)(3) US charity or qualifies under an *Equivalency Determination (meaning equivalent to a 501(c)(3) US Charity). Should neither of these conditions be met, funding cannot be granted. If you do not have a "Friends of" charity and want to know what documentation you will need to qualify under Equivalency Determination, download this document listing all the requirements to obtain an Equivalency Determination.

If you have questions regarding our recommendation process or any other inquiries about our grants in general, please email us at grants@azimuthworldfoundation.org.
