2021 FUNDING PRIORITIES

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the overwhelming amount of submissions the John F. and Mary A. Geisse Foundation receives, the Foundation is not operating on a two cycle grant calendar for the 2021 fiscal year.

WASH inquiries: The Foundation is interested in funding organizations that are solely focused on water, sanitation, or hygiene. It is our experience that outcomes and longterm sustainability are increased when an organization is working within WASH only.

Education inquiries: The Foundation is interested in funding organizations in 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.
