To date, the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World has committed over $150 million in grants designed to address its three core pillars or work: (1) health, science, and technology, for smoking cessation and tobacco harm reduction tools that complement progress achieved by FCTC efforts; (2) agricultural transformation, for crop diversification and alternative livelihoods in tobacco-dependent countries, with an initial focus on Malawi; and, (3) tobacco industry transformation, for transformation of the global tobacco industry and nicotine ecosystem in a manner that is compatible with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework.
Grants are reviewed by independent boards and are solicited directly or via requests for proposals (RFPs). Supported work is carried out by independent research organizations, academic institutions, and organizations in the private sector. All ensuing research will be published with full transparency, regardless of results.
