Indigo does not accept unsolicited proposals. Experience has taught us that an open application process is burdensome for both sides and rarely results in new grants being awarded.
Through a combination of desk-based research, scoping visits, recommendations from partners and suggestions from grantees, we identify suitable partner organisations and projects to support. This approach allows us to directly target relevant and high-quality organisations, while reducing the burden associated with a high volume of unsuccessful, unsolicited proposals. We regularly review the process to identify potential improvements to the system.
