Catalyst Grants Program

CRUSA’s Catalyst Grants Program finances actions designed to reinforce not-for-profit organizations by building medium- and long-term management capacity.

Our grants – for up to $10,000 – are aimed at catalyzing organizational growth, enabling organizations to build internal management capacities, make key improvements in infrastructure, and spend on resources or campaigns for strengthening their fundraising capacity, among other efforts.

We do not finance direct attention to beneficiaries or pilot plans or training for direct beneficiaries. 

New proposals for the Catalyst Grants Program will be received when the public call for proposals is made in 2019.

Contact us at if you have any questions.
