Funding Opportunity: Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) Grant

About the Organization

The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) is a Norwegian foundation that supports communication projects which advance the transition to a low carbon economy. The Foundation supports advocates of climate change mitigation.

About the Grant

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 

MFMC traditionally announces six calls for applications every year, in two different categories: large and small grants. 

  • Large grants – In this category, MFMC is looking for projects typically in the range of EUR 20,000 to EUR 200,000, although larger projects may be considered. The application process consists of two steps, where interested organizations are asked to initially submit a short pitch. Based on this, the organization may be invited to submit a full application if the MFMC board finds the project appealing.
  • Small grants – In this category, it is possible to apply for smaller grants of up to EUR 10,000 in a simplified one-stage process. Applications will be assessed by the MFMC board based on its aims and strategy.  

How to Apply

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.
