Grants Making

Welcome to our Grants page,

We would like to inform you that, we have completed our strategic plan which ran from 2016-2020. In the outgoing strategy, Grant Making was one of the very core mandates of Foundation for Civil Society which consumed approximately sixty percent of FCS resources.

We provided grants in two main programmes namely Good Governance and Livelihood and Economic Development in addition to a number of limited grants guided by our Peace building Sub-strategy.


End of 2016-2020 Strategy and Development of 2022 – 2026 Strategy 

In the 2016-2020 strategy, we worked with approximately 150 CSOs annually through provision of grants. These CSOs were from both Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar covering all regions of the country.

Given that the 2016-2020 Strategy ended, FCS in 2021 is implementing a Transitional Strategy which, among other issues, largely focuses on previous Strategy Evaluation and also developing a new strategy going forward.

We do hope to have the new strategy from August 2021. It is until that time that we can have more clear view on how we go forward with our services.

We therefore encourage our partners to keep a regular eye on our web and social media pages in case we have any further updates and kindly subscribe to our mailing list in this website to receive regular information and civil society sector updates directly to your inbox.
