HOW WE WORK
From the outset, we’ve worked with organisations that are likely to benefit substantially from our grant funding
Our work now stretches across five main themes around the globe: education, enterprise and livelihoods, health, humanitarian relief/emergencies, and water, sanitation and hygiene. In each sector, we aim to improve performance, provide wider access and inclusion, foster innovation and catalyse access to finance.
We promote innovation or replicate successful solutions from similar settings – to bring about lasting and sustainable change.
The Vitol Foundation provides financing in different forms (grants and other appropriate funding) to non-profit and for-profit organisations. Our funding is typically either unrestricted within an overall project budget or fully unrestricted.
As a flexible funder, we can fill the funding gap if an organisation has reached a transitional phase and needs to proceed to scale. We support the capacity building of local stakeholders and encourage learning and deep collaboration with our grantees.
We believe in long-term partnership and collaboration to tackle major world problems
We value partnerships across civil society, the private and public sectors, and the wider international development community and build strong networks with like-minded funders to share knowledge and leverage co-funding.
By working together with the private sector, national governments, public institutions and international partners, we channel private capital to invest in reinforcing and improving existing in-country systems, creating lasting and sustainable change.
