Applying for Funding

GIF accepts applications on a rolling basis – our window is always open with no deadlines or rounds of funding.

Please carefully review the guidance before deciding whether to invest time in preparing an application. Doing so will increase your chances of success.

Start by reviewing What We Fund to gauge whether there is an initial match between your funding needs and GIFs investment thesis and criteria.

If you believe that you meet our funding criteria then review the Type of Funding and the Stage of Funding section for additional criteria on the type of capital available (grant, debt, equity or a blended approach) and the amount of funding for which you can apply.
