The Rockefeller Brothers Fund provides its grants on themes of Democratic Practice, Peacebuilding, and Sustainable Development. Again, this fund also has a focus on certain geographical areas only. The Fund currently works in three pivotal places: New York City, Western Balkans, and Southern China.
The fund is open to accepting unsolicited Letter of Inquiry (LOI) but it also advises that the chance of winning a grant through such a request is low. However, you can still explore any funding opportunity by using its online grant inquiry system.
Before applying or seeking grant through the online grant inquiry, the fund encourages all applicants to carefully read its program guidelines. Also, you need to ensure that your project fits into any one of its themes and also within its pivotal places.
Grant inquiries need to submit additional documents that may be different for different types of grant. If you are requesting grant for an advocacy project, then you need to address certain points as mentioned in the advocacy memo. With the fund’s special focus on diversity, applicants are also expected to fill a Diversity Worksheet. Other requirements for non-US organizations include the equivalency affidavits (to determine if your organization is equivalent to a US public charity) and the Public Support Form (to ascertain the level of public support of the organization).
