Through community building and empowerment,the goal is to strengthen local institutions and initiatives that sustain and improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable people in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. In 2010, the Southeast Asia program granted approximately US$1.7 million.
Initiatives that are comprehensive or employ more than one of McKnight’s strategies are of particular interest. The program also considers emerging or innovative initiatives with potential to advance our program goals.
Support may be given to targeted policy or advocacy projects that are directly rooted in the challenges, opportunities, and threats facing marginalized people and communities.
Local and international NGOs working in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam may apply for funding. Grants are made for one-, two-, or three-year periods, with the possibility of renewal. Average grant size is US$45,000 per year and are currently limited to a maximum of three years.
