GMA (Grantmakers Managers Advisors) Foundations - The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations and academic institutions for projects that address community needs in eligible locations. Funding is intended to improve public health, food production, and food distribution, and to protect natural resources. The Foundation supports low and lower-middle-income countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Additionally, preference will be given to organizations located in low and middle-income countries and organizations located in upper-income countries whose activities benefit low- and middle-income countries.
The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to protect natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and promote public health in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. The Foundation helps build the capacity of organizations and coalitions with grants that support research or improve the learning and generation of local solutions to complex problems.
The Foundation supports projects that demonstrate local leadership and promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem or question in the field. It prefers to support projects that address under-funded issues and geographic areas. The Foundation supports special projects and programs of non-governmental organizations in three areas: conservation, food, and health.
