root2fruit alumni grants

ECF awards grants for specific capacity building projects to root2fruit alumni organizations. 

The Foundation recognizes that organizations continue to need capacity building opportunities beyond the three-year root2fruit cycle. In 2011 the Foundation established the possibility to apply for one year specific capacity building project grants. These grants are available only to organizations that have previously participated in the three-year root2fruit grants program.
