CD-UNITED Call for Proposals: Democracy in Action- Expanding Civil Society Space
Deadline: 31 December 2016
The Community of Democracies invites organizations to apply for funding through its CD-UNITED program, which provides financial support to projects that support and strengthen democracy.
This year’s theme is Democracy in Action: Expanding Civil Society Space. Most organizations that are working on topics associated with the basic values and human rights enshrined in the Warsaw Declaration are eligible for funding. The strength and success of nations depend on allowing civil society to function without interference, and on robust engagement between governments and civil society to advance shared goals of peace, prosperity, and the well-being of all people. In many parts of the world, however, civil society’s right to open and unconstrained operation is curtailed, with increasing number of governments taking steps to limit the space for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).
With a total budget of $272,000, CD-UNITED will provide co-financing to applicants who propose ways to expand the space for civil society. Applicants are responsible for securing co-funding from other donors before they submit an application.
The applications may be submitted by:
1) non-governmental organizations,
2) non- profit organizations,
3) public institutions,
4) private and public higher education entities,
5) for profit organizations,
6) unregistered organizations, or
7) public international organizations.
