Non-profit organizations (including associations) which have already undertaken -or who wish to undertake- a joint action in the field of sustainable development with a recognized counterpart in at least one of the following ten selected countries: Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Special attention will be given to proposals involving partners in a number of European countries or the south coast of the Mediterranean.
Projects must contribute to one of the aims of sustainable development i.e. conservation of resources, biodiversity and the environment; social cohesion and solidarity across territories and between generations; the fight against climate change; stimulation to growth in line with responsible methods of production and consumption, etc. Important factors for their management are questions of participation, management organization, horizontal approach and joint evaluation. Special attention will be given to those projects encouraging or reinforcing European networks (including France) in the field of sustainable development.
In order to encourage applicants to develop a variety of partnerships, in particular on a local basis, the Fondation de France never finances a project in its entirety. Financing plans must detail other financial partners approached or acquired, the forecast proportion of internal financing and an estimation of voluntary work. As an indication, the amount granted annually to each project will be in a range between 10,000 and 50,000 euros. Multi-year projects will be considered.
When you have completed the grant request, in English, attach the required administrative documents and where applicable, annexes to facilitate evaluation of the project and send your dossier to the Fondation de France (Word format, maximum 4 megabytes).
