Poland - Kulczyk Foundation Grant Competition

Polish non-government organisations, associations, foundations, cultural institutions, social entrepreneurships, and even entities run by local and regional authorities can participate in the Kulczyk Foundation Grant Competition. However, there is one condition – these must be women or girls who are the beneficiaries or entities holding the notified projects.

By organizing another series of the Grant Competition, Kulczyk Foundation wants to support such social initiatives which hold the projects aimed at women who are struggling with the problem of gender discrimination in their social and political lives. The aim of the foundation’s promoted actions is to build the reality where being a woman is not an obstacle to free access to a profession, opportunity to develop and realizing their passions.

Every year there are two series of the grant competition. In each of them the total amount of grants is PLN 250,000. The maximum amount one can apply for is 25,000. Applications for the competition should be submitted between 31st March to 30th June 2020, by filling in a form (link - in Polish). Apllications can be sent by post to: Kulczyk Foundation, ul.Krucza 24/26, 00-526 Warszawa (with “Granty KF”) or by e-mail to: granty@kulczykfoundation.org.pl. Applications will be considered until 15th September 2020 by the competition jury. Assessment criteria of applications or any firther information can be found in the Grant Competition Regulations (link - in Polish).

More on Kulczyk Foundation Grant Competition

The competition has been held since 2015. So far, the competition jury have announced 30 winners in its seven series. Up until recently, infrastructural projects, which have permanently changed the space for the advantage of the most needy groups, have been promoted. Thanks to the non-refundable Kulczyk Foundation’s grant it was possible to modernize Stacja Ratunkowa (Rescue Station) GOPR in Klimczok, build a kitchen at the self-dependent workshops in Zofiówka for orphans, create a reading room for people with autism and intellectual disabilities in Warsaw, or support little patients of Szpital Dziecięcy (Children’s Hospital) in Lublin.
