European Grant Competition – Win up to $15,000


Global Challenges Local Solutions grantmaking program supports European Community Foundations and associations, implementing SDG-related projects on the local level. European Grant Competition was set to provide grassroots organizations across Europe with additional resources that can improve local initiatives.

The fund provides project grants of up to $15.000 to proposals by community foundations, registered and operating in Europe. Projects should address the Sustainable Development Goals on the local level. Additionally, there should be a clear link between implementing SDG-related learning and capacity-building activities in the community.

The grant committee will evaluate proposals based on the adequacy of the planned activities to the local community’s needs defined in the project and its feasibility and effectiveness. Projects should indicate the scale of engaging local community members, replicability and the possibility of its implementation by the other local organizations.

The deadline is on 20 July 2020.
