Who We Are?

Our Mission

Civil Collective is a grassroots grant maker, working to enable grassroots organizations and civil society networks to take control over their own development.

We aim at creating a cohesive and systematic process of capacity enhancement and local fundraising that enables local networks to tap into local resources. 

Our mission is to build a World, where grassroots Organizations and local communities advocate for their needs, and local resources are mobilized to accelerate locally led initiatives.
