Dream Blue Foundation: Grants for Global Development

OVERVIEW: The Dream Blue Foundation’s global development grantmaking focuses on education, community development, and rural healthcare.

IP TAKE: Dream Blue does not award many grants each year, so grantseekers can expect competition. While this funder seeks to offer immediate assistance to those in need, it prioritizes projects that offer lasting and sustainable solutions to pressing problems.

PROFILE: The Dream Blue Foundation was established in 2012 by the telecommunications company Blue Telecom. The foundation seeks to “[i]mprove the quality of life of individuals and communities worldwide by funding a wide range of programs that create lasting impact and solutions.” Grantmaking priorities include education, healthcare, and community development.

Dream Blue facilitates its global development grants through all its main grantmaking program; however, its education program is currently focused on Tunisia, Cambodia, and on delivering Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) to educate and train Arab youth. Similarly, other Dream Blue grantmaking programs fluctuate in their geographic focus—grantseekers should keep up with any changes.  

Grants range from about $20,000 to $200,000. Dream Blue does not make a large number of grants each year, usually fewer than 20. In addition, grantmaking is limited to nonprofits in the United States, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Israel, Cambodia, Jordan, and Indonesia.
