How to apply

To apply for funding, please follow these 4 steps:

  1. Please check that your application/project idea fits with one of our two program areas as well as our general criteria for funding. Applications that do not fit will not be considered.
  2. If your application/project idea is a good fit, please send us an email at applications@krfnd.org with a short description of max 500 words of your project idea (in the email – not as an attachment), including your theory of change, a brief explanation of how it aligns with one of our two program areas and our general criteria for funding. Please note that we cannot guarantee feedback in time for the next LOI deadline for emails received after 26 January.
  3. If your project is eligible to apply for funding, you will be invited to submit a brief Letter of Inquiry (LOI) through the template available in our online Grants Portal, Fluxx. We will do our best to answer you as soon as possible. Guidelines for LOIs are available in the guideline section.
  4. Based on a review of the LOIs, a limited number of applications will be invited to submit a full proposal for the Foundation’s final consideration. Guidelines for Submitting Full Proposals are available here.

The next deadline for LOIs is 31 January 2018 at 5pm CET.
Applicants will be notified whether or not they have been selected to submit a full proposal in early March 2018. The deadline for submission of full proposals will be in early April. Applicants will be notified of KR Foundation’s final decisions on funding in the middle of May 2017.

Future LOI deadlines will be announced in June 2018.
