New Field Foundation’s grantmaking is carried out through two programs, Local and Regional. By funding local and regional efforts that complement one another, it aims to support positive change within specific focus areas and also more broadly across Africa. Existing grants within these categories are listed under grants awarded.
The three focus areas of grantmaking are:
- Mano River Union border region of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone;
- Casamance region of Senegal;
- Northern Niger River Basin, particularly initiatives connecting Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.
The majority of the grants go to support dynamic local groups that are organizing collectively to create thriving, equitable and peaceful communities for rural African women and their families. Local program grants are intended to:
- Enable rural African women and their families to re-establish and transform their lives after disruption and displacement;
- Ensure that rural African women and their organizations benefit from, control and maximize financial, material and technical resources;
- Enable rural African women’s leadership and active participation in all levels of decision-making.
- Influence and implement changes in attitude, processes and decision-making at provincial and national levels in ways that benefit rural African women and their families.
The Foundation is interested in supporting organizations that:
- Are Africa-based, women-led and community-centered;
- Demonstrate that they operate for charitable purposes and have the capacity to receive international funds; and,
- Demonstrate well-functioning management, financial and programmatic systems.
