ON 28 JUNE 2021, THE UEFA FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN LAUNCHES ITS CALL FOR PROJECTS WHICH SEEK TO PROMOTE CHILDREN’S FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS ACROSS THE WORLD.
This call for projects is aimed at any organisation that shares the values of the UEFA foundation and proposes practical measures to help children, in the areas of access to sport, health, education, employment, personal development and supporting vulnerable children.
Applications are invited from organisations anywhere in the world. Support is not limited to projects within Europe.
The UEFA Foundation for Children will examine and evaluate each project.
The final decision on the selection of projects will be taken by the board of trustees in accordance with the foundation’s statutes and ethics code.
Specific conditions relating to funding are provided in the Project Criteria as outlined below:
Projects will be assessed at two levels:
• Institutional level
• Project level
There are two types of criteria at each level:
• Deal-breakers – These are compulsory criteria: if the organisation or project does not fulfil these, the project will be rejected.
• Weighted – These criteria will be used to assess the relative value of the project and enable us to rank it overall.
The funding provided by the UEFA Foundation for Children is not predetermined, but it must be proportional to the size of the project. Co-funding is encouraged.
