How to apply

KR Foundation grants are awarded twice annually. 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 your project idea (max 500 words), 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.
  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 and no later than two weeks after having received your email. 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.

The previous deadline for LOIs was 28 August 2017
Applicants will be notified of KR Foundation’s final decisions on funding in the beginning of December 2017.
