NED Grant

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.

Each year NED makes direct grants to hundreds of nongovernmental groups abroad working to ensure human rights, an independent media, the rule of law and to advance other democratic goals.

We encourage applications for financial support from activist organizations in diverse situations, such as transitional countries where the goal is democratic consolidation, authoritarian countries where the goals are liberalization, and the protection of human rights.


How are funding decisions made?
Funding decisions are made on a quarterly basis by the NED Board of Directors. In addition to evaluating how a program fits within the Endowment's overall priorities, the Board considers factors such as the urgency of a program, its relevance to specific needs and conditions in a particular country, and the democratic commitment and experience of the applicant.

What types of programs is the Endowment interested in?
The Endowment is especially interested in proposals that originate with local democratic groups. It is also interested in nonpartisan programs seeking to strengthen democratic values. Note that the Endowment does not make grants to individuals.

All proposed projects must be consistent with the Endowment's general purposes as briefly outlined in the first paragraph of About Us.

How can my organization apply for a grant from the Endowment?
To apply for a NED grant, submit a proposal cover sheet, proposal and budget to proposals@ned.org or to the appropriate regional Program contact person at the NED. The Endowment can only process incoming proposals if they are accompanied by a Proposal Cover Sheet.

Where can I find a Proposal Cover Sheet?
For your convenience, you can download a proposal cover sheet here :: PDF. It is also in the “pdf” file to the right of this text.


Where can I find NED’s proposal guidelines?
