About the fund
The Social Impact Fun and initiative of the Vine Fund offers grants of between $500 - $1,000 to social impact organisations in Ghana and Nigeria.
To us, 'giving back' should be a part of every organisation's reason for existing. That's why at Foundervine, we've been raising funding from our employees and community to assist mission-driven organisations to get back on track.
In 2020, the world experienced the devastating impact of COVID-19, which led to nationwide lockdowns and government restrictions. In Ghana and Nigeria, small charities and social enterprises were hit very hard. That's why Vine Fund 1 is supporting organisations that help communities in these countries.
The funding can be used for:
Helping you get your social impact organisation back on track
This might be the costs of getting trading back up and running, supporting outreach and marketing, supporting your costs while your business gets back to full strength, developing new markets and services etc.
Helping you work with communities that are recovering
This might be work related to supporting communities that have been hard hit by COVID-19, for example, supporting people to get back to work, helping marginalised children catch up with education, supporting families who have been bereaved, and providing services for people affected by long COVID etc
