Selection of Projects

We strive to achieve a transparent and objective selection of projects.
Our selection criteria consider the following aspects:

  • Problem description and background

  • Importance of problem and urgency to solve it

  • Project intervention logic

  • Project structure and timing

  • Partnership and cooperation

  • Cost benefit ratio of planned activities

You are asked to complete our templates for project application accordingly. Therefore you are obliged to use our forms that are updated regularly and published here.

The foundation’s office is responsible for selecting potential projects for funding. As a general rule, decisions regarding funding are taken by the Board of Directors (up to € 100.000) and by the Board of Trustees (beyond € 100.000).

During the selection procedure the foundation can involve its Project Advisory Committee (PAC) for the evaluation of projects. Your application documents are of course treated confidentially and the principles of data protection are respected.
