The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. The Foundation focuses on the following issues: Education & Youth; Governance & Accountability; Health; Rights & Justice; and Media & Information. The process for applying for grants varies by program. Some use requests for proposals (RFPs), others invite letters of inquiry (LOIs) or concept papers, and certain others accept proposals by invitation only. Given that each program has specific grant-making processes, it is best to inquire with that particular program to explore fit and process.
