Enterprise Marketing Fund (EMF) – Kenya Round 1
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) and the Clean Cookstoves Association of Kenya (CCAK) are accepting proposals from enterprises working in the cookstoves and fuels value chain to support consumer-facing communications aimed at increasing purchase and use of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels in Kenyan households.
Funding awarded under the enterprise marketing fund (EMF) is intended to enable individual enterprises to support promotion of their brands and products. (The Alliance issued a separate call for proposals to support behavior change communication interventions intended to promote the clean cooking category more broadly.)
The Alliance expects to make multiple grants in this round. No individual grant will exceed $25,000. Enterprises with 2015 annual revenue greater than $250,000 will be required to contribute 25% in matching marketing funds. All other enterprises will be required to contribute 10% in matching marketing funds.
Grantees will have six months from the disbursement of the grant to complete their activities. Only businesses legally operating in Kenya, who are selling cookstoves and/or fuels and are Alliance partners and CCAK members are eligible to apply.
Instructions for how to apply for an award from the EMF are included in the full RFP below.
