GRANTS PROGRAMME

The Ma’an Grants Programme is an initiative in which eligible social organisations and not-for-profits can apply for financial assistance to build and grow their organization.

Grants are provided to value-driven organisations who require financial support to increase their positive social impact, addressing the social priorities of the Emirate. The Authority will collaborate with successful Grant recipients from the year-round open application to ensure the organizations make a sustainable and measurable impact.

Social Investment Fund

Administered by Ma’an as Abu Dhabi’s official government channel to receive contributions from the public sector, private sector and community, the Fund aims to tackle the most pressing social challenges identified in the Emirate. Its investment decisions are aligned with the United Nations' Social Development Goals and the priorities of the Department of Community Development in Abu Dhabi. Through contributing to the Social Investment Fund you can support in establishing a thriving third sector in Abu Dhabi that aims to address important social causes.

About the Authority

Ma’an

Ma’an was established in February 2019 by the Department of Community Development in Abu Dhabi with the aim of bringing together the government, the private sector and civil society to support a culture of social contribution and participation. The authority will deliver solutions for social challenges with four main pillars of work – a Social Investment Fund, a Social Incubator Program, a Social Volunteering Program and the introduction of a new type of public contracting, Social Impact Bonds.

THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT DEPENDS NOT ONLY ON THOSE WHO ARE IN RESPONSIBLE POSITIONS, BUT ALSO ON THE EFFORTS OF EVERY CITIZEN IN THIS COUNTRY.
H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
Our brand identity symbolizes the interconnecting water channels that make up the Falaj, the ancient irrigation system in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi. Sharing responsibility for the Falaj, the community took turns to look after and maintain their small section of the irrigation system. Working together, each individual action became one great outcome and the whole community shared in the wealth brought by fresh water.

HOW WE WORK?

MAAN facilitates multi stakeholders, collaborate and participate to achieve sustainable, well-defined and measurable social impact, through encouraging innovative and sustainable solutions to solve societal challenges that face Abu Dhabi with the aim to elevate the standards of living in the Emirate and achieve positive impact.

MA’AN SOCIAL INCUBATOR

MSI is a social innovation program and one of the pillars of Ma’an that brings together individuals and organizations to enable them to create innovative solutions to social challenges.

The Maan Social Incubator (MSI), will focus on encouraging social innovation and entrepreneurship in competitive incubation cycles, each lasting 6 months. In its 2019 inaugural cycle, MSI’s theme will focus on the social, recreational and economic integration of People of Determination (PoDs) to improve their overall well-being.
