Commonwealth Foundation Grants Programme for Civil Society Organizations 2022/2023

Commonwealth Foundation Grants Programme for Civil Society Organizations 2022/2023 – As one of the three intergovernmental pillars of the Commonwealth, the Foundation operates within that critical space between government and the people.

The Foundation works to bring the voice of civil society into all aspects of governance, supporting civil society engagement in shaping the policies and decisions that affect people’s lives.

The Foundation’s Strategic Plan 2021-2026 is strongly linked to the Commonwealth Charter and its values and aspirations, and it identifies three thematic areas of focus:

  • Health
  • Environment and climate change
  • Freedom of expression

Possible freedom of expression areas may include supporting civil society to engage meaningfully with government on:

  • Advocating for a legal and regulatory environment that protects and upholds freedom of expression for all
  • Promoting access to information and transparency in governance, including through a free and independent press, robust freedom of information laws and their practical application
  • Supporting civil society to work with artists to raise awareness to issues of freedom of expression and engage in advocacy efforts around these issues
