Who We Fund

Mostly NGOs:

  • Providing healthcare or nutritional interventions, or strengthening health systems
  • The only exceptions are those we began funding pre-2015.
  • Our grantees are early stage with big ideas.
  • If your budget is beyond $1m you are probably too big for us.
  • If your budget is beyond $2m you are definitely too big for us.

Global Health Funding

We provide funding to health needs that are elemental and under-funded. In 2016, 233,000,000  people in sub-Saharan Africa were undernourished.

Between 75% and at least 90% of Africans suffering from mental illness do not get care.

And 34 out of 1,000 babies born in sub-Saharan Africa die; many for easily preventable causes.

While we support initiatives that tackle diseases like malaria and tuberculosis, we do so as part of horizontal approaches to primary care.
