The Ma’an Grants Programme is an initiative in which eligible social organisations and not-for-profits can apply for financial assistance to build and grow their organization. Grants are provided to value-driven organisations who require financial support to increase their positive social impact, addressing the social priorities of the Emirate.
The Authority will collaborate with successful Grant recipients from the year-round open application to ensure the organizations make a sustainable and measurable impact.
The objective of the Ma’an Grants Programme will be to grow and enhance existing not-for-profits and social enterprises, that are working towards the mandate of elevating Abu Dhabi’s social and community development.
The Grants Programme will work with Ma’an’s key strategies to advance the growth and sustainability of a flourishing ‘Third Sector’, comprised of organisations with value-driven goals. The Grants Programme will work alongside other initiatives including The Ma’an Social Incubator and Accelerator and the Social Investment Fund to aide social organisations to thrive.
