Another grant contest!
Last year, the applications were coming in until the very last moment. This year, we have more money to hand out. The first Kulczyk Foundation Grant Contest of the year was launched on 1 March. There are available grants of up to PLN 25,000, but you need a really good project. “We have changed the rules to allow for maximum support of projects with clear objectives and the measures for their achievement,” stresses Kulczyk Foundation Managing Director Marta Schmude-Olczak.
There will be two editions of the contest in 2016 – this one in the spring and the next one in the fall, with each offering a total of PLN 100,000. The maximum single grant amount is PLN 25,000. “All it takes is a single glance at the new application form to understand what we are looking for. We ask about objectives, about the project’s evaluation potential, about the expected social impact. We want to promote the same smart approach to social initiatives as the wonderful organizations we support all over the world,” notes Marta Schmude-Olczak.
The deadline for submitting applications for this edition is 30 June. The contest is open to social organizations or cooperatives. “We really want to show the importance of a systemic and structural approach oriented toward building sustainable mechanisms of change for social initiatives. We are counting on such applications,” said the President of Kulczyk Foundation Dominika Kulczyk, as she extended an invitation to the contest. What do you have to do to enter the competition?
