Devon Creek Foundation: Grants for Global Health

OVERVIEW: The Devon Creek Foundation’s global health related grants mainly focus on women’s reproductive health and children.

IP TAKE: This funder does not award a large number of grants each year. Grantseekers should expect competition when approaching Devon Creek.

PROFILE: The Devon Creek Foundation was granted charitable status in 2014 and aims to “[p]romote sustainability at global, national and local level.” Grantmaking programs include Population, Energy, Human Rights, Reproductive Health, Justice, Education, Environment, Civil Society, Arts, Conflict Resolution and Strengthening NGOs.

The foundation’s Reproductive Health program focuses on women and their reproductive health rights. Areas of funding interest include family planning, access to health care, newborn health, sex education and preventing unplanned and unwanted pregnancies.

Devon Creek’s grant amounts are relatively modest, typically ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Past global health grantees include HDI Inc., which received funding for its maternal, newborn and child health partnership; and Operation Fistula, which received a grant to support its work in ending obstetric fistula.

The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals; however, it accepts unsolicited letters of inquiry.
