Grants & Investments
Capcon is currently only reviewing grant proposals on an invitation basis, and thus unsolicited proposals are not accepted. We carefully assess each proposal and therefore believe it is critical to stress the quality and care of the decision-making process versus reviewing a lot of deserving organizations.
We follow a multi-step process in exploring partnerships, which includes:
- Initial screening for alignment of focus and mission
- Research and assessment of personnel
- Operational assessment
- On-site evaluation, when possible
