Please note: GEO is not a grantmaking foundation and does not accept applications for support. Rather, GEO is a membership organization serving grantmakers, helping them apply strategies and practices that contribute to grantee success. Additionally, the GEO community is not a place for solicitation of grant funding nor does GEO support members in their fundraising efforts.
