Mostly NGOs

Providing healthcare or nutritional interventions, or strengthening health systems

The only exceptions are those we began funding pre-2015.

We are only taking new grantees working in sub-Saharan Africa.

New grantees are early stage with big ideas.

If your budget is beyond $1m you are probably too big for us.

If your budget is beyond $2m you are definitely too big for us.


All of our NGOs

Have the potential for out-sized impact. We believe you don’t need to have a lot of money to have a big effect. Why? Because we’ve seen it firsthand.

Do it right.

Collect the data.

Make the case.


Global Health Funding

We provide funding to health needs that are elemental and under-funded. In 2016, 233,000,000  people in sub-Saharan Africa were undernourished.

Between 75% and at least 90% of Africans suffering from mental illness do not get care.

And 34 out of 1,000 babies born in sub-Saharan Africa die; many for easily preventable causes.

While we support initiatives that tackle diseases like malaria and tuberculosis, we do so as part of horizontal approaches to primary care.

Understand that it’s not about being right. It’s about getting it right.
