Howard G. Buffett Foundation - 40 Chances Seed Grants

The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Arizona State University, and the Lodestar Center for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Innovation retain the right to make all final determinations on winners of the 40 Chances Seed Grants, and will not discriminate on the basis of anything other than the merit of the application, its alignment with the values of 40 Chances, and its fit with broader program goals of the sponsoring organizations. We retain the right to use or publish all information provided in the application, but will not disclose your phone number or mailing address beyond the program partners.  We reserve the right to contact you for additional supporting material if you are selected as a finalist for a Seed Grant.  By applying for a Seed Grant, applicants release The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Arizona State University, and the Lodestar Center for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Innovation from any and all damages and liability resulting from participation in the Seed Grant program.

The 40 Chances Seed Grants program will provide small-scale funding to the most innovative nonprofit organizations and/or Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs) that use strategies built on the principles of 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World.  These nonprofits must support solutions to social challenges in the areas of food security, conflict, or poverty alleviation.

The strategies of nonprofits that apply for a seed grant must clearly involve local leadership and management into the operations of the organization, and integrate locally driven design, development, and deployment in its programs or services.  In addition, the organization’s efforts should fill gaps in existing value chains, or otherwise combine a variety of complementary and existing efforts into a comprehensive and integrated approach to solve the intended challenge.  Grants of $10,000 will be provided to selected winners.

Fall applications are due October 15, 2014 at 5 PM EST. Seed grants will be awarded twice per year, and winners for the second round of grants will be announced in the Fall of 2014. Organizations must have U.S. 501(c)(3) tax exempt status to be eligible, or be sponsored by an organization that does. Recipients of seed grants will be expected to provide a report on the use of the grant and its impact following the implementation of funds.
