Allianz Foundation Grants Program 2024: Fixing what's broken. Together.

AUSSCHREIBUNGEN | Einreichfrist: 7.2.2024, 24 Uhr

With its grants program for 2024, the Allianz Foundation is supporting projects from the fields of arts and culture, European civil society and climate and the environment, which are taking a stand against social divisions and ecological crises. We are looking for cooperative initiatives from Europe and the Mediterranean region that stand for solidarity, a sense of community, and respect.

The most precious things are sometimes the most fragile: Take for example our planet’s thin atmosphere that makes it possible for us to breathe and live, as well as the networks of relationships we have with one another, within and in between societies, and with our environment.

There is enormous political, technological and social pressure weighing on those connections supported by trust and care, empathy and respect. Authoritarianism, the hardening of ideologies, discrimination and exclusion, the insistence on destructive forms of economy, the exploitation of planetary resources, a polarizing media environment – this all produces concerns that we are crossing tipping points – socially and environmentally. For decades now, we have been aware of the dysfunctional relationship between people and their natural environment. Recently, an increasing number of cracks have become visible between former allies. There is a dissolving of alliances that have grown over the years.

There is also reason for hope. Networks have held their ground, even under increasing pressure, and new alliances based on trust have emerged. This is where the Allianz Foundation’s grant program comes in. With this call, we aim to support committed actors from the fields of European civil society, arts and culture as well as climate and the environment in building and maintaining resilient structures and continuing to fight for just futures within our planetary boundaries. Because that which seems fragile can turn out to be surprisingly sturdy.

The Call in a Nutshell

The Allianz Foundation is looking for projects from the fields of arts and culture, European civil society, climate and the environment, which are taking a stand against increasing social and ecological decay. Eligible are cooperative initiatives from Europe and the Mediterranean region that stand for solidarity, a sense of community, and respect.

  • The application process has two stages: 1. Project outline, 2. Full project application for selected outlines.
  • The submission deadline for project outlines is February 7, 2024, 12:00 pm (noon) CET. Project outlines can be submitted through our online form.
  • Applicants will be informed by March 7, 2024 whether the proposal was selected for a full application. The selected proposals will receive further information on how to submit a full application.
  • Applications will be submitted to our expert juries in May and to our Board of Trustees for the final funding decision in June.
  • The selected projects will be announced in July 2024.
  • The funding period is from August 1, 2024 to December 31, 2026.

Projects can be funded with an amount between 80,000 and 225,000 € for a maximum duration of 24 months.

What we are looking for

We are looking for applications from the fields of European civil society, arts and culture as well as climate and the environment that

  • are realized by at least two equal partners. The idea of building bridges and promoting change through cooperation should be inscribed in the project structure. We particularly welcome transdisciplinary applications as a foundation that works at the interface of different topics and disciplines.
  • take a systemic view of areas of action, go beyond mere problem analysis and look for solutions with a leverage effect – preferably outside of the well-worn paths.
  • develop a sustainable vision going beyond the immediate time scope of the project and conveying a clear picture of which structures are to be established or maintained and which changes can be achieved. What will last beyond the end of the funding period and would have been impossible without the project?
  • transcend national borders and have strong local roots at the same time. In other words, projects that strive to tackle global challenges by bringing about change in their region, communities, or local environment.
  • that use natural resources in an economic way and pursue sustainable formats and strategies.

What we offer

  • grants between 80,000 and 225,000 € per project, for a maximum duration of 24 months. Earliest starting date is 1 August 2024.
  • the opportunity to apply up to 20% of the total project amount as administrative costs. In this way, we want to recognize the importance of indirect costs for sustainable, structural civil society work. These costs can be used, for example, to finance expenses that are not directly project-related - such as rent, personnel costs or the purchase of materials.
  • integration and participation in the networks and activities by the Allianz Foundation, enabling contacts to be established with risk takers and committed actors from all over Europe and the Mediterranean.
