If you are an Objectivist, with a passion for advancing Ayn Rand and Objectivism, please consider submitting an online grant proposal to learn if your request can qualify for support from the Objectivist Venture Fund.
Grant proposals will be evaluated within 30 to 60 days to ensure that they meet the guidelines of the Objectivist Venture Fund. After this initial step, qualified proposals will then be reviewed and prioritized for potential inclusion in the fund’s current plans. We may contact you during the review process with additional questions, and you will be notified of our decision at the end of our evaluation period. The Objectivist Venture Fund appreciates all efforts to seek funding but regrets that support will only be offered to a limited number of individuals and organizations.
The fund will accept proposals from Objectivists worldwide and from for-profit and not-for-profit individuals and organizations. Proposals can be for grants or loans. Funding will typically range from $5,000 to $100,000 per year, up to a maximum period of three years. It is possible for a successful project to receive funding beyond the initial three-year period, but preference will be given to proposals that offer a credible plan to become self-sustaining after the initial funding period.
The OVF makes grants subject to a zero overhead policy.
