The Development Awareness Fund (DAF) is a competitive fund, designed to support not-for-profit organisations to carry out projects which raise public awareness and understanding of global poverty and how it can be reduced.
We are currently in the design stage for a replacement funding mechanism following consultations with key stakeholders. The new scheme will be up and running later this year. It will again be for not-for-profit organizations that are seeking funding to raise public awareness and understanding of global poverty. But it will not be for work with the formal education system. Formal education support will be provided under new education programmes developed for each nation. More information will appear on our website in due course.
The DAF was open to any UK-based not-for-profit organisation or network which shares our commitment to raising awareness and understanding of development issues.
Projects must promote public understanding of development issues, with a focus on one or more of the following objectives:
DFID contributes funding for up to 100% of project costs. Funding ranges from £10,000 to a maximum of £100,000 per year, for up to a maximum of 3 years. Funding is awarded on a competitive basis, following an annual funding round.
The 2010/11 funding round is now closed, for projects with a planned start date during the financial year commencing on 1 April 2010. The deadline for submitting concept notes for this funding round was midnight, 25 September 2009.
