Lisle International is a unique non-profit organization that funds small development projects around the world through its Global Seed Fund. Its distinctiveness comes from how it melds experiential cross-cultural learning with the work itself, placing equal emphasis on relationships and development funding.Lisle has been ahead of the curve since its inception in 1936, recognizing the essential value of group process interaction in promoting global understanding and sustainable growth at every level, from the individual to nation. These relationships foster a network of people around the world which increases creativity and growth; thus the funding, by itself, is two-dimensional: process and outcomes. Most organizations emphasize one or the other, few do both, and even fewer do so with the commitment and success of Lisle.
Lisle Global Seed Fund has awarded 6 new grants for 2014-2015. More information about all of the projects will be posted shortly.

The Lisle Board announced six Global Seed Grant awards at the 2014 Annual Meeting in Loveland Ohio. We were delighted to receive more applications than ever for Seed Grants this year -. It was a long and difficult discussion but we feel the grants awarded fulfill our desire to reach out to organizations which extend the Lisle goals of being education focused, intercultural, peace oriented, and diverse or, in a nutshell, demonstrating WORLDMINDEDNESS.Back to Top
