The Creativity Fund

Our mission is to nurture the curiosity, imagination and originality of future leaders, turning the spark of creativity into a flame that benefits our communities. 

The Creativity Fund is reimagining charitable giving by inverting traditional decision-making structures and making funding opportunities truly inclusive. 

Many highly talented creative entrepreneurs who come from impoverished backgrounds are unable to realize their creative potential. They lack access to most sources of potential funding.

The Fund seeks to re-imagine charitable giving by providing grants and seed funding to promising ventures.

We extend funding opportunities to creative entrepreneurs who would otherwise not be able to access funds and put local actors at center of decision making.

The Fund will source projects to address problems in communities with a great need for funding. 


The applications will be accepted in a variety of accessible formats such as online Application, Paper, free phone calls. 

Check back here till the end of February 2024 to apply

We are always looking to increase our impact by raising money through philanthropy to re-grant through our democratic systems. 

If you are interested in funding the Ingazi Fund to do this important work, please do reach out! 

We're looking for experts from many fields, from design to legal expertise, to support us in this work.

Please reach out through our site if you're interested in participating!
