Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) Small and Large Grant aims 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:
a) encourage and support innovation in climate communication;
b) increase the number of voices and narratives in climate advocacy;
c) help strengthen social and political movements that open up for radical change;
d) concentrate on supporting European proposals.

The foundation will only consider applications that clearly fall under its strategy.

Utilize This Offer

The Foundation supports advocates of climate change mitigation.

The foundation will not consider applications that have a purely local focus, that focuses on implementation of community-level projects such as forest conservation, tree planting, climate change adaptation, or that primarily seek to disseminate climate-related information to the general public.

The calls for applications are open to international applicants.

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:
The foundation is looking for projects above EUR 10,000 – typically in the range of €20,000 to €200,000.

Application deadline for both calls: 26 November 2021.
