Minor Foundation for Major Challenges Offering Grant Program

The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) has launched a grant program to support communication projects which advance the transition to a low carbon economy.

MFMC supports projects that support urgent, large-scale transformation, with a focus on changing policies and practices in public or private institutions.

The foundation’s priorities for the 2019-2023 period are to:

  • Encourage and support innovation in climate communication;
  • Increase the number of voices and narratives in climate advocacy;
  • Help strengthen social and political movements that open up for radical change;
  • Concentrate on supporting European proposals.

Funding Information

  • The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges – small grants: It is possible to apply for smaller grants of up to EUR 10,000, provided that the application falls within the strategic aims of MFMC.
  • The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges – larger grants (step 1): The foundation is looking for projects above EUR 10,000 – typically in the range of €20,000 to €200,000, although larger projects may be considered. The foundation will only consider applications that clearly fall under its strategy.

The Minor foundation supports communication projects that

  • Aim to reduce GHG emissions in line with the urgent transformation required;
  • Lead to policy or behavioural change among decisionmakers or lead to changes in policies or practices in public or private institutions;
  • Increase the public’s support for climate policy measures;
  • Are otherwise difficult to fund.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Foundation supports advocates of climate change mitigation. The calls for applications are open to international applicants.
