Why doesn’t NoVo accept unsolicited proposals?

22 June 2012

Unfortunately we have to make tough choices and are not able to fund all the organizations doing critically important work. Instead, we work in close consultation with experts, thought leaders, and people at the grass roots whose deep knowledge we can draw upon to make our funding choices. Therefore, we do not accept unsolicited proposals for funding. We believe that by funding in strategic ways that build capacity and impact, we can attract more resources. We seek to accomplish our mission by supporting grantees that take on complex social issues and aim to eliminate injustices, not just alleviate them.
