Through the Charitable Trust Fund, FOMA makes small grants, normally up to £1,000 to any one organisation in any one year, for a variety of projects in Malawi where we believe our contribution can make a difference. Grants are usually oriented toward social, educational and healthcare projects but we will consider any project that will improve the welfare of Malawians or further the objectives of the Association.
FOMA has funded over 248 projects since 1990, totalling almost £220,000. Our projects page includes examples of organisations that FOMA have recently supported.
All applications must use the official proforma available to download. Projects be assessed against the funding criteria by the Grants Committee and successful applicants notified by email.
There are two funding periods each year. A closed round in March for invited organisations only; and an open round in November for general applications from eligible organisations working in Malawi. Submission periods open on 1st and close on the last day of the month.
