The fund will provide multi-year commitments for general operating support and the institutional strengthening of its grantee partners to build more durable, more resilient, more networked, and more impactful public interest journalism organizations in Europe.
In addition to strengthening specific organizations, Civitates aims to create a diverse cohort of organizations that go on a learning journey together. Through its Funding Plus activities Civitates connects organizations, encouraging them to meet, learn, and collaborate where it makes sense, so that the grantees in the cohort can grow stronger together. This network effect is an essential element of the sub-fund and grantees are expected to play an active role in it. At the start of the grant period, all grantees will undergo an organizational assessment with a trained facilitator (paid for by Civitates) to better understand and prioritize their needs.
The funds point of departure is editorial independence. Civitates recognizes that while journalism can produce impact and change, journalistic organizations cannot and should not promise specific (policy) outcomes. Civitates’ grantees therefore retain full editorial control and will never be asked for pre-publication editorial review or for any specific outcomes related to coverage in advance. Instead, grantees are asked to summarize what they have learned during the course of their work.
Funding Information

Grant amounts may vary depending on the size and scope of the plans proposed as well as the applicant organization’s annual budget. Organizations will be able to request funding according to these conditions:
Organizations with an annual budget up to €100k can apply for funds up to 50% of their annual budget (based on the actual figures of the last closed fiscal year).
Organizations with an annual budget up to €200k can apply for funds up to 40% of their annual budget (based on the actual figures of the last closed fiscal year).
Organizations with an annual budget above €200k can apply for funds up to 30% of their annual budget (based on the actual figures of the last closed fiscal year), with a maximum of 200K EUR per year.
Duration

(Ad) Not able to keep track of so may different grant opportunities and their deadlines? No problem! fundsforNGOs Premium has a handy tool called « Deadline Calendar. » This tool will help you keep track of all upcoming grant opportunities and their deadlines and view them in a beautiful calendar format. Learn more.

The duration of the grants can be up to 3 years (potentially renewable for another two years).
