You can submit your application any time.
We will let you know when you can expect a response.
Applications should be submitted at least four months before the project starts. Applications are processed based in order of the submission date, and applicants generally receive an answer within 3-4 months from that date.
In cases where questions arise or in the event of unexpected circumstances there may be delays. Overlong applications, incomplete application forms, or forms without the required additional documents cannot be considered.
We are happy about all applications, but we always receive more submissions than the foundation can support. Therefore, rejections are unfortunately unavoidable. We ask for your understanding that we do not communicate the details of rejection decisions.
Projects sufficiently meeting the support criteria will be discussed at the next possible board meeting.
If the application is approved by the board we will inform you in writing with the details (amount, conditions, dates).
We will contact you should we need additional information.
Rejections are unfortunately unavoidable. We strive to inform you as soon as possible of a negative decision.
For projects continuing over several years the foundation requires a short interim report per year (using our form) before approving and transferring the next installment.
Any changes in the information on the application (e.g. personnel, financing, project content) must be promptly reported to the foundation.
Within 6 months after the end of the project, we expect you to send us the completed evaluation form and a short final report (free design possible).
Until the completed evaluation form and final report are discussed and approved by the board, the final 10% of the support for the completed project will not be released.
