RAITH offers the following grants:

  • Core
  • Emergency
  • Discretionary
  • Institutional Development

Please note:
For 2022, the Fluxx portal will be open from January to end April for core grant applications.

Applications for emergency, discretionary and institutional development grants may be submitted at any time throughout the year.

Core Grants:

For core grant applications please note, RAITH funds across all thematic areas in the social justice space (e.g., environment, health, education etc) as it relates to the achievement of our overall goal:

To build sustainable civil society institutions that hold those with power accountable for the achievement of a fair, just, and democratic society with dignity for all.

From time to time, the Foundation Board decides on priority areas for core grant funding, given our limited budget and the need to be responsive to critical emerging social justice issues. The current priorities are:

  1. Governance and Accountability, with a focus on corruption and state capture (e.g exposing and prosecuting corruption or poor governance)
  2. Economic Justice, with a focus on economic redistribution and resource allocation (e.g. alternative food systems, health and education resource allocation, social grants and the Basic Income Grant)

 The Foundation funds core grants of up to 3 years. There are no automatic re-grants. Each grant application is considered on its merits. Approval of grants is at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. 

Emergency Grants:

The Foundation provides emergency funding in the following cases and within the context of our overall goal:

  • If the issue to be addressed requires an immediate response
  • If the request is as a result of unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the applicant
  • If the issue is not addressed immediately, this would damage RAITH’s long-term goal or cause immediate irreparable harm to the achievement of that goal

Emergency applications can be submitted for any amount but the emergency intervention should be completed within a short time-frame.   Approval of these grants is at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

Discretionary Grants

Discretionary grants are provided for support to the sector for strategic interventions. These are small, once off grants up to a maximum of R100,000. 

Institutional Development Grants

Similarly, institutional development grants are once off grants of up to a maximum of R100 000. These grants are for any institutional strengthening intervention aimed at making the organisation more sustainable.
