ABOUT THE NED GRANTS PROGRAM

Each year the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) makes direct grants to hundreds of nongovernmental organizations worldwide working to advance democratic goals and strengthen democratic institutions. Each year, NED makes more than 2,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 100 countries.

WHO NED FUNDSNED

funds only nongovernmental organizations, which may include civic organizations, associations, independent media, and other similar organizations. NED encourages applications from organizations working in diverse environments including newly established democracies, semi-authoritarian countries, highly repressive societies and countries undergoing democratic transitions. NED does not make grants to individuals, governmental bodies, or state-supported institutions such as public universities.

  • Strengthen democratic ideas and values
  • Promote accountability and transparency

  • Strengthen democratic political processes and institutions
  • Promote civic education
