Based on current events, funding in 2019 will be focused on the following three themes:


  • Accessibility

Allowing people with impairments access to everything society has to offer.


  • Social Mobility

Providing young people with inclusive and innovative education, thereby fostering self-sufficiency.


  • Migration/Integration

Offering migrants a chance to be part of inclusive communities and providing equal access to health care, education and social welfare.


We currently have a focus on projects in the following regions:


  • Europe
  • The Middle East
  • North Africa


For a detailed list of countries included in these areas, please visit our FAQ page.


We 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 forms must be submitted in English language.


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. 


Applicants with projects which were funded by the Kahane Foundation in 2018 wishing to re-apply for funding and continue their project in 2019, are asked to get in touch with us via email before January 14th, 2019. Applicants may then be invited to fill our online application form for Running Projects (deadline January 18th, 2018).


The first phase of the application period for funding in 2019 is now over. It is not possible to submit unsolicited applications at this time.
