Tilitonse Foundation's Role in Grant-Making
Tilitonse Foundation is a grant-making facility that will be providing funding to a range of Non State Actors (NSAs) to implement governance interventions as defined by the Tilitonse Foundation Strategic Plan. This will be done through a number of funding ‘windows’. This section provides details on these funding windows, the process through which NSAs can access funding from the Foundation, and the funding ceilings.
Tilitonse Foundation uses four funding windows namely: General Open Call Window; Thematic Call Window; Community Based Organizations Call Window (CBOs); and Rapid Response Call Window. For each window, specific guidelines are iterated.
Non State Actors to be funded under the Foundation should meet the following criteria;
- Organizations applying for funding must be registered within Malawi;
- International organizations must be registered both in Malawi and in their ‘home’ country with demonstrated well-founded partnerships to local NSAs;
- Organizations should have a governing or management board with a clear corporate governance structure;
- Potential grantees must be able to supply three years of audited accounts (or one year audited accounts for newly-formed organizations); if the organization has not been audited for the past year but has letters of recommendation from the most recent funder supported with viable reasons for lack of auditing this will be considered (This would be requested from shortlisted applicants);
- NSAs may apply singularly, in a consortium of partners with one NSAs leading, or as a network;
- Submitted concept ideas/proposals must comply with the Tilitonse stipulated outputs.
