       Grants for Writers 

The de Groot Foundation is a private family foundation created in 2010 to support high impact, sustainable innovation, education and cultural projects. After working with organizations internationally to enhance communities through healthcare and education access, safe water, literary arts projects, fellowships and youth empowerment, The de Groot Foundation has
turned the page to primarily shine the spotlight on emerging voices in the literary arts. Through their words, writers have the power to shape, heal, inspire and educate societies.  Because of our love of literature and the power of story, we’re passionate about focusing The de Groot Foundation’s initiatives on discovering new voices and encouraging emerging writers.

Applications for our annual COURAGE to WRITE and LANDO grants for writers will open in early January 2024. The de Groot Foundation will award thirty-six unrestricted grants to writers in 2024.
