Open Society Foundations Building Social Base Grants 2019 (Up to $70,000)

Deadline: June 23, 2019

Call for applications are open for the Open Society Foundations Building Social Base Grants 2019. The call seeks to support NGOs efforts strengthening their social support base. The Open Society Initiative for Europe seeks projects that can develop concrete, well-designed, and detailed plans for how the applicants will reach, interact, and involve those people who approve and support their values and goals and who actively receive and deliver their messages.

The projects should introduce how the planned activities strengthen public and professional visibility of the applicants—how to increase the number of their supporters, volunteers, and followers on social media. In addition, the projects should contain measurable indicators and the clear expected results and impact.


  • Applicants may submit one proposal per organization for a one-time nonrenewable grant up to a maximum of $70,000.


Open to NGOs registered in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia that have a proven track record of work for open society values and are active in the following professional areas:

  • Human rights, including but not restricted to the rights of women, people who are LGBTI, minority populations, and other disadvantaged groups
  • The rule of law
  • Anticorruption
  • Investigative journalism
