    We currently work exclusively with organisations in the above mentioned fields and although we focus our support in Europe, Canada, Middle East, Afghanistan, India and Africa, we acknowledge that special needs have no geographical locus.


    It is our philosophy to conduct ongoing dialogue with project initiators as well as local experts to assess the most urgent needs. Where necessary we also assist our partners in finding experts, advisors and other sources of funding.


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

    We currently do not accept new applications from Israel, Palestine, South America, Asia.


    New projects are required to fall into our above-listed focus areas and regions, and not fall into our list of exclusions.


    Please Note: Only applications submitted through our online forms will be considered. 


    All applicants for new projects are required to use the First-Step application form -- information to which can be found below, under the title "Applications for funding within 2018".


    In order to speed up our evaluation process, we have two steps for first-time applicants. The "First-Step application", which is a short and basic form, is the only form which is publicly available. This form is often evaluated immediately upon submission, and shortly afterwards you can expect a reply with either a positive response with an invitation to fill the Second-Step application form, or a decision to decline the project for funding. 


    The First-Step application period for the funding of projects within the calendar year of 2018 starts at November 1st, 2017 and ends on January 12th, 2018.


    The Deadline for Second-Step applications is January 31st, 2018.


    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.


    The deadline for Running Project applications is January 31, 2018.


    The application period for funding within the year 2017 is now over.  


    We are currently reviewing our long term vision and concrete key areas of funding. 


    Important dates for applicants applying for funding in 2018:

    • November 1st, 2017 -- Application period starts 
    • January 12th, 2018 -- Deadline for First-Step applications
    • January 31st, 2018 -- Application period ends
    • Early April 2018 -- Applicants can expect a final decision
    • Late May 2018 -- Grantees can expect funds

    Please note: the "apply" button, which is a link to the online application form for First-Step applications, will be in this field during the application period.


    For emergencies, we occasionally accept applications from outside of the application periods.  In this case, please send us a short description via our contact form. Such projects should of course also meet our requirements listed above.
