Due to the current COVID-19 climate as well as the overwhelming amount of submissions the foundation has received in the last grant cycles, the Geisse Foundation is focusing on current grantees and temporarily placing a hold on inquiries from prospective organizations. 

Thank you for your understanding. 


The Geisse Foundation is interested in funding organizations within the education sector who are focused on sustainable and scalable solutions, partner with local or national government or other NGOs, disseminate their information, use an innovative program delivery, and have a culture of research and development. 

Please address the following in your Letter of Inquiry:

  1. How is this program sustainable? 

  2. How is this program replicable? 

  3. Who do you collaborate with?
