Open Society Foundations (OSF) has announced a call for proposals for organizational development grants to think tanks in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, or Ukraine. Organizational development grants aim to provide support for improvement in the three specific areas of think tank activity and operation: (1) Quality of research products; (2) Communications and advocacy capacity; (3) Internal development and governance. The grants aim to contribute to building strong think tanks that produce high-quality policy analysis, deliver it to a wide range of audiences to galvanize public interest and debate, and operate as sustainable and internally robust nonprofit organizations. An organizational development grant can cover from one to all three areas for a period between one to three years based on an applicant’s demands, merit of the proposal, and the time needed for implementing necessary changes. To be considered for an organizational development grant, your organization has to be a multi-issue think tank registered in one of the above mentioned countries and have been in operation for at least 24 months. The grant amounts may vary but in accordance with OSF regulations, the total amount of all OSF funding to your organization cannot exceed one-third of your institution’s overall budget for the current calendar year. The deadline for proposals is on the 14th of February, 2013. For full guidelines and the original call follow this link.
