Humanist Entrepreneur Project Grants

Humanist Global / Brighter Brains Institute has provided 71 project grants in the last five years, delivering funds to humanists (primarily in Subsaharan Africa) to help them achieve economic sustainability. .

In 2019 BBI is awarding grants for business projects with budgets of $300.

Proposals are viewed every month.

A few VERY IMPORTANT RULES are as follows:

  1. Do Not Send in a proposal without first inquiring about your chance of eligibility. Send inquiry email to

  2. Applicants must be humanists; tell us which humanist organization(s) you belong to and agree with our Humanist Oath (written by Mubarak Bala).

  3. Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot fund “closeted” humanists. We have a policy of 100% transparency plus we are legally required to publicly acknowledge who we fund. We are working to solve this problem. At the present time, we can ONLY FUND humanists who are comfortable with their name and face presented as “humanist” on our website.

  4. All applications must be received in the BODY OF THE EMAIL

  5. All women’s organizations must be directed by women.

  6. We do not fund Pigs, Rabbits, or Sugarcane.

  7. If selected, the recipient will get 50% of funds initially, with a request to make a sign. After photo of the sign is received, the remaining 50% will be sent.

  8. If you don’t receive the grant the first time you apply, you can re-submit your proposal.
