About the Fund
The Civil Society Fund or CSF (formerly Small Grants Program) supports activities related to civic engagement by providing small grants administered through World Bank Country Offices. The CSF seeds and supports activities that empower and enable citizens to take initiatives to enhance and influence development outcomes. Activities strengthen mechanisms for inclusion, accountability, and participation. Activities also strengthen partnerships with public sector, other civil society organizations, and the private sector.
Before You Apply
The World Bank CSF is able to fund only a very small percentage of the requests it receives. Many requests are declined, not because they lack merit, but because they do not match either the current objectives, or the criteria of the CSF as closely as the selected proposals. Your activity may fall within the objectives and criteria, but the demand far surpasses the availability of funds. Before applying, please take time to read the Guidelines to determine if there is a match.
Who can apply?
Civil society organizations based in the Philippines and working on issues of development
Civil society organizations must be in good standing and have a record of achievement in the community and record of financial probity;
Priority will be given to organizations not supported by the CSF in previous years (organizations are not eligible for more than three grants from the CSF within a five-year period).
