Opinion: We must invest in global nutrition and end the need for foreign aid
Executive Director, William Moore makes the case for investing in global nutrition.
“If the US and our partners continue to make smart nutrition investments at scale, perhaps even in our lifetimes—when every child, every economy, and every society is properly fed and nourished, and the need for foreign aid ceases to exist.”

Announcement: 2018 Request For Applications Q&A Now Available
ECF has published consolidated responses to questions we have received about our 2018 RISE RFA. Please visit our Request For Applications page to download the Q&A document, and for more information about our RFA process.
ECF is pleased to announce the release of our third annual RISE (Research, Innovate, Scale and Establish) for Nutrition Request for Applications (RFA). Through our RISE portfolio, ECF funds implementation research on cost-effective, scalable innovations designed to improve nutrition interventions in East Africa.
Accompanying this year's RFA, ECF is excited to release the first installment of our Grantee Guidance Series: Theory of Sustainability and Theory of Scale. ECF hopes this guidance paper will serve as a resource for RISE applicants and other nutrition actors in their efforts to more clearly integrate considerations of scale and sustainability into their project design and implementation efforts.
Concept Notes should be submitted by November 25, 2018 to RFA@eleanorcrookfoundation.org.
Outside of ECF’s annual Request for Application (RFA) process for funding implementation research, The Foundation awards grants through an invitation-only application process. We do not accept unsolicited funding inquiries or proposals.
