Grassroots Linkages Grant Program

Our Grassroots Linkages grant program provides small monetary grants to grassroots organizations in the Philippines that are working for economic and social justice. The grant range is $100 to $1,000 with a typical grant between $300 and $500. We provide grants to a very limited number of projects each year because we are a small voluntary organization and raise our own funds.
