Thank you for your interest in Firelight

Firelight builds the capacity of catalytic community-based organizations that are working to realize smart, sustainable, and scalable solutions to the challenges faced by children and youth in southern and eastern Africa.

We are not currently accepting letters of inquiry or applications for funding. As Firelight raises all of its capital from major foundations, family foundations and individual philanthropists, we don’t always have the ability to accept grantees.

But we don’t mind hearing from you so if you wish to register with us as a potential future grantee, we recommend you consider completing our short eligibility survey. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter your information into our database and/or to sign up for e-mail updates from Firelight.

As you complete the eligibility quiz, please note that Firelight prioritizes support for community-based organizations and – as such - does not support individuals or international NGOs. Please also note that Firelight does not fund organizations that evangelize to beneficiaries of their programs. Firelight also does not support orphanages because we believe that children grow best in families.

Thank you again for your interest in Firelight.

Sincerely, The Firelight Team
