These are 2-year core operating support grants of up to USD 60,000 allocated at a maximum of USD 30,000 per year. Imarisha grants are geared towards consolidating and sustaining organisations that have long-term and large scale strategies.
UHAI EASHRI created Imarisha Grants in response to feedback from our grantee partners that, while many funders could support activities, few funders were willing to support the core and operational costs of the work of organisations. These grants are purely for core support to the organisation, to cover operational expenditures such as salaries and indirect programme costs, strategic planning etc.
Organisation receiving Imarisha Grants, will not be allowed to charge programme activity costs to the grant.
