The United Nations Democracy Fund invites civil society organizations to apply for funding for projects to advance and support democracy.
The United Nations Democracy Fund supports projects that strengthen the voice of civil society, promote human rights, and encourage the participation of all groups in democratic processes. It is the only UN entity that has the word “democracy” in its name; the only UN body with the primary purpose of supporting democracy through empowering civil society; and one of the youngest entities in the UN system.
UNDEF projects exist in developing countries, in societies in transition and in challenging environments, and are in six main
areas: community development; rule of law and human rights; tools for democratization; youth; empowering women; and media. UNDEF grants range from US$100,000 to US$300,000.
Project proposals are subject to a highly rigorous and competitive selection process, quality vetting, due diligence and lessons learned from previous Rounds
UNDEF projects are two years long, project grants ranging from $100,000 to $300,000, and fall under one or more of six main focus areas:
· Community development
· Rule of law and human rights
· Tools for democratization
