USAID/Bosnia and Herzegovina: Philanthropy in Action Activity
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications from qualified entities to implement a new Cooperative Agreement for the Philanthropy in Action (PA) Activity.
The goal of the Philanthropy in Action (PA) Activity is to strengthen broad-based participation in community development. The purpose of the activity is to increase philanthropic giving in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Furthermore, PA will work in cooperation with other Local Works Activities, and other USAID activities, to strengthen social cohesion by mobilizing and empowering connections and solidarity among various groups in society.
Trust by the public in philanthropy improved: This activity will support active philanthropic organizations in BiH by working across different sectors and engaging with a wide range of stakeholders by finding creative solutions to make philanthropic giving more transparent and accountable.
Ease of conducting philanthropic activities improved: In order to enable greater giving, efforts must be made to engage a wider set of stakeholders from different sectors and to make giving easier through various solutions. Under this sub-purpose, USAID is looking to facilitate greater cooperation and engagement of private, public and civil society sectors in philanthropic efforts. This activity will seek to develop the capacity of those organizations involved in philanthropy, ultimately in order to make the process of giving simpler and make philanthropy activities more systematic.
USAID intends to provide up to $2,000,000 in total USAID funding over a four (4) year period.
Eligibility for this NOFO is restricted to small local, international, and United States-based nongovernmental organizations, educational institutions, and other small entities that have received less than a total of $5,000,000 from USAID over the previous 5 fiscal years, in accordance with the Localworks Legislation.
The applicants are requested to propose no more than two sub-recipients.
USAID welcomes applications from new partners that have not previously received financial assistance from USAID.
