What’s specific to the Grants Program vis-à-vis other calls of the Foundation such as the Climate Cultures Call?
“What makes the Allianz Foundation Grants Program different from other calls that it has a broad thematic scope. We’re looking for projects from across all three of our strategic areas: for empowered people; for open societies; for a living planet. By contrast, we publish individual calls for projects such as the Climate Cultures Call when we want to focus on a very specific challenge. Also, these calls are only published at specific times and on an irregular basis, whereas you can apply for our Grants Program throughout the year. For projects starting in a given year we ask to have your application no later than February 15 so we can assess them in time and offer advice in the application process, if needed. We’ll announce the selected projects in July - they can run for up to two years and have a budget of 80-150k per year. So all in all, the Grants Program offers you the opportunity to implement projects with a wider scope.”
