Futura Foundations: Grants for Global Health

OVERVIEW: The Futura Foundations support global health organizations working in developing and least developed countries around the world. It’s global health work prioritizes girls and women.

IP TAKE: Future does not provide information regarding its grant eligibility and requirements. Grantseekers should Futura staff for additional grantmaking information.

PROFILE: Based in Stockholm, Sweden, the Futura Foundations consist of two separate and independent entities, Futura Good and Futura Green. Futura Green typically dedicates the majority of its funding to research taking place at Swedish universities and colleges. Such funding limitations do not appear to apply to Futura good. According to the foundation’s website, “Futura Good firmly believes that gender equality is not a woman’s issue, it is a human right.” Futura Good supports organizations with the “[m]ost innovative social initiative and organizations working to improve the outcomes of girls globally.”

Although Future Good’s global health related grants tend to focus on women and girls’ health it also awards grants to organizations focusing on access to healthcare and last mile health. Past global health grantees include Possible, which received funding for its access to healthcare work in poor and remote communities in Nepal; and the Cup Foundation, which received a grant to support its work providing life-skills training and menstrual cups to girls living in “challenging environments” around the world.
