The Halle Foundation
Grants Program
Deadline: Ongoing
The Foundation supports new and innovative projects which further its mission of promoting knowledge and friendship between the people of Germany and those of the United States. The Foundation relies on the requesting organization to fully organize, staff, and execute any projects for which grants are requested. As a matter of general policy, the Foundation does not support budget relief of previously established organizational projects, even if those projects fit within the Foundation’s mission. In keeping with the founder’s preference, most U.S. grants are made to organizations and institutions operating within the state of Georgia.
