Project funding
Application for funds

As a foundation we annually allocate funds to support charitable organisations in their sustainable projects. To apply for funding, a project has to comply with the following requirements:

  • Focus of project content on renewable energies (solar power, solar thermal, biomass)
  • Regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa (especially East Africa) or Eastern Europe
  • Sustainability of the project is highlighted

Moreover, we consider projects that have an additional focus on gender and the promotion of women as especially eligible.

Applications (which consist of a filled in application form and a financing plan) must be handed in in written form.

The application period for projects to be implemented in 2019 is now closed! The next opportunity to apply for funding for projetcs to be implemented in 2020 is from 01.07. to 30.09.2019! Any applications submitted outside this application period will not be taken into account.

Note: We are currently updating our funding guidelines. The new guidelines will be published in May 2019.

More information on our funding criteria can be found in our funding guidelines. The necessary documents for an application consist of a filled application form and the financing plan.
