In 2018, we are working with projects within the focus areas of Accessibility, Social Mobility and Migration/Integration.


These projects should share the goal of offering all members of society a chance to be part of inclusive communities, fostering self sufficiency and providing equal access to health care, education and social welfare.


In 2018 we are focusing on projects in the following regions:


  • Europe
  • MENAT (Middle East, North Africa and Turkey)


We currently do not consider applications from individuals or for projects in the fields of culture, art, nature and sports.


We only accept applications submitted through our online forms. 


All applicants for new projects are required to use the First-Step application form -- the link to which can be found at the bottom of this page during the application period.


The First-Step application form is often evaluated immediately upon submission, and shortly afterwards applicants can expect a reply with either an invitation to fill the Second-Step application form, or a decision to decline the project for funding. 


January 12th, 2018: Deadline for First-Step Applications

January 31st, 2018: Deadline for Second-Step Project Applications


Applicants with projects which were accepted for funding in 2017 wishing to re-apply for funding and continue their project in 2018, are asked to get in touch with us via email before January 12th, 2018.  Applicants may then be invited to fill our online Running Project application.

For emergencies, we occasionally accept applications from outside of our normal application period.   In this case, please send us a short description via our contact form.

For administrative reasons, we can only consider emergency project applications during the 7 months PRIOR to our application period (in 2018, starting in April)!

Such projects should of course also meet our requirements listed above. During our application period, emergency project applications must apply as described in the section "Procedure for new projects".
