Football People Event Grants launched


FARE logo

A pool of €30,000 is being made available by the Fare network to fund up to ten events that tackle discrimination and address social exclusion as part of the Football People action weeks in October.


The Event Grants scheme will support events that have the potential to be highlights of the two week period in October as European football comes together led by the grassroots to stand against discrimination.


The scheme is open for applications from 20 March until 15 May 2014. Projects must be implemented during the Football People weeks that will take place from 9th to 23rd October 2014.


Finnish Fare Board member Ike Chime urged applicants to get involved, “The Fare action weeks are now the biggest activity of their type in Europe. We want you to join us and organise events that can be a marker for the period.


“The grants of up to €3000 are easy to apply for if you have a big event that is far- reaching and innovative. It will take around 20 minutes, give it a go.”


If you are interested in applying you should read the criteria carefully and fill out the application. Projects will be assessed for suitability on what they present. So think about how your project could look.


If you have a great idea about a project that goes beyond the tried and tested and can make a difference but it doesn’t fit in, get in touch with Fare.
