Allianz Cultural Foundation > Open call for grants
The non-profit Allianz Cultural Foundation initiates and sponsors multilateral art, culture and education projects in Europe and the Mediterranean fostering mutual understanding and dialogue that transcends borders. Its main focus is on cross-disciplinary and contemporary projects that put innovative approaches in art, culture and education into practice and that help shape social change in the spirit of European integration. They particularly support programs that promote exchange, encounters and digitization, that ignite enthusiasm for the European project in young people, and that forge sustainable ties between participating players.
As a general rule, the foundation funds joint non-profit projects involving partners from at least three different countries. Aside from demonstrating the requisite artistic or scholarly quality, projects must make clear that all cooperating partners are equal partners, equally responsible for their project's conceptual and financial planning and execution. Projects should be designed to create durable connections between the participating actors. Furthermore funded projects should be conceived to make long-term, broad-based effects. All grant applications that comply with the foundation's funding guidelines and are received on-time by the Allianz Cultural Foundation are first put up for discussion by the Advisory Board. The Advisory Board then expresses its recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The latter body then makes the final decision on funding.
The Allianz Cultural Foundation cannot fully finance a project (maximal possible funding = 50%). Your budget should clearly indicate which concrete subtotal is being requested from the Allianz Cultural Foundation, and for what purpose(s).
