OVERVIEW: The Green Park Foundation’s global health grants are typically awarded to groups who work to combat neglected tropical diseases, prevent fistula, and address female genital mutilation. On a smaller scale, the foundation supports human rights and women’s empowerment.
IP TAKE: Green Park does not make many grants each year. But, it does seem to favor local and grassroots outfits in the global health space. Also, this funder only awards a handful of annual grants in the global health space, so grantseekers should anticipate competition.
PROFILE: The Green Park Foundation is a small Florida-based nonprofit with no web presence or paid staff. Green Park’s giving reflects the foundation’s size, and is typically limited to less than 10 grants annually. The foundation does not name specific areas of grantmaking focus; however, after examining its recent tax filings, it appears that Green Park favors global health organizations working with poor and marginalized populations in developing countries.
Working with vulnerable populations around the world seems to be the only thing Green Park’s global grantees have in common. This foundation selects its grantees very carefully as it grants few global health grants each year. Green Park supported organizations that control and eliminate neglected tropical diseases, stop female genital mutilation, prevent and treat fistula, and promote human rights and women’s empowerment.
Although Green Park is a small organization, its grants range from $15,000 to $50,000. The foundation does not accept unsolicited inquiries or proposals, but seeks like-minded organizations to support. Green Park tends to support its grantees for multiple years, but its records reveal that it accepts several new grantees each year.
