Unless otherwise specified, all unsolicited (new, “first-contact”) applications for funding must complete and submit the First-Step Application -- a link to which is available on our Funding Page during application periods (in 2019: November 11th to December 8th). Outside of our application period, this form can be accessed by invitation.
After a positive evaluation of the First-Step application form, you will be invited to continue to the Second-Step application form.
After positive evaluation of the First-Step Application form (see section on First-Step Application, above), applicants will receive an invitation to the Second-Step application form. It is possible to submit Second-Step applications until the deadline of January 11th, 2020.
Organisations with a project which was funded by the Kahane Foundation in the previous funding period wishing to re-apply for funding (for the continuation of the project), must first inform us of their intent to do so. After informing us of your intent to re-apply, our team will get in contact with you to discus future funding opportunities. If invited to re-apply for funding, the grantee will receive the link to the Running Project application form (also called "the application form for previously funded projects") via email.
The Project Report form MUST be submitted (as either a progress or final report) before consideration as a Running Project is possible.
A link to the Project Report form is sent to grantees upon the board’s decision to fund the project (usually in early April). If you have lost this link, please write us an email asking us to resend it. Depending on the funding agreement between your organisation and the KF, this form must be submitted as a progress report (usually in October) and/or a final report (at the end of the project or funding period). The Project Report form is a requirement for previously funded projects wishing to re-apply.
Depending on the funding agreement between your organisation and the KF, this form must be submitted as a progress report (usually in October) and/or a final report (at the end of the project or funding period). This form is meant to give us a brief summary of how the project has developed (or has been developing) as well as insight in how significant an impact our contribution has made (or is currently making) on the project.
The Kahane Foundation does not publish any max/min funding sum, as need varies greatly from project to project. The award amount depends on both the project’s need and our evaluation.
Due to the volume of project applications which we receive, we only accept one application per organisation.
The project itself can run as long as necessary, however, applications should generally concentrate on the funding period in question (in this case the funding year of 2020).
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to save your answers on the online form. Applicants are, however, recommended to write the answers in a text editing program ( e.g. Microsoft Word) as they go – this ensures not only that answers are not lost in the case that the page is refreshed or closed while the form is being filled out, but also allows applicants to “save” their answers for completion at a later time. Also recommended, is to complete the application with reference to the respective "Application Form Walkthrough" – a link to which can be found at the top of the respective application form.
Don’t worry. If we do not understand something within the application, we will contact you to clarify. In the case that you measure the mistakes to be significant, you may also submit a second application. Just be sure to write us to let us know to ignore the first one.
Please write us via our contact form and explain what happened. We will do our best to solve the problem, and will of course give you a confirmation if we have received your submission.

The Kahane Foundation does not publish any number in this regard as it varies greatly from project to project. That being said, trends indicate that as the amount of funding requested approaches the total budget of the project, it becomes less likely that the project will be funded by our foundation.
