About the Organization
UNIFOR is a non-profit organization with more than 25 years of experience in managing foundations. We manage private foundations that support research and higher education, art and music and other non-profit purposes. Most of the foundations support purposes at UiO, NTNU, NMBU and the Norwegian Academy of Music, but also other non-profit purposes in, for example, municipalities.
About the Grant
The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) is a Norwegian foundation that supports 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
The foundation will only consider applications that clearly fall under its strategy. Further information about the foundation, including its bylaws and its complete strategy for the period 2019–2023, is available on the MFMC website.
Please note that 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.
MFMC traditionally announces six calls for applications every year, in two different categories: large and small grants.
In this call for applications 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. Please consult the MFMC strategy carefully before considering submitting an application.
The application process for larger grants is in two steps. In the first step, you are welcome to submit a short pitch on behalf of your organization. After thorough evaluation by the foundation’s board, applicants may be invited to the second step, in which a full application will be submitted.
