NextWorldNow Community Investment Grant

Deadline: 
31/03/2018

NextWorldNow Community Investments (NWN) works with individuals, communities, and other organizations to make this happen. We invite communities with project ideas to submit their requests for funding. 

We seek smart ways to invest in and support community development projects requiring modest capital.  We fund projects that are owned by the local community, whose social impact and return on investment can be measured, and whose success can be sustained.   In the spirit of innovation, we aim for a diverse "portfolio" of projects and geographies to spread creative solutions.  

We aspire to deliver a best practice social investment model on a personal level.  Our process invites an ongoing direct connection with the sponsored community rather than an anonymous one-time donation.   We operate with minimal overhead and a goal of funneling nearly 100% of grant resources to the intended community project.
