The OSI Think Tank Fund has a portfolio of more than 30 grantees in 15 countries. This paper is an effort to articulate a single strategy for these various grantmaking activities.
This paper describes each of the two broad funding areas in order to distinguish the unique elements of each grantmaking program and to demonstrate how these grant portfolios merge into one network program. The program’s grantmaking priorities for the next 3 years are furthermore elaborated. In the coming period, the Think Tank Fund will place greater emphasis on the development of institutions, capacity building for policy research and analysis, and the exchange of experiences/good practices among the groups it supports. The final section of this paper details the implications for the institutional development of the fund itself.
