Our funding strategy

How can Bewegungsstiftung bring about the greatest change with its limited financial resources? Our funding strategy provides the answer. These are its main principles:

Consulting and partnership

Having the necessary finance in place is of course only one factor, albeit an important one, in boosting the chances of political success of a project. After all, even the most generous financial grant from the foundation is of no use if the expertise to develop and implement political strategies is lacking.  Read more ►

Campaign Funding

Social and political change needs a lot of time, persistence and great commitment. That’s why Bewegungsstiftung supports campaigns with a clear strategy and a long-term effect rather than single actions such as demonstrations and press conferences. Read more ►

Organizational Funding

The purpose of organizational funding is to establish a firm, long-term basis to enable the campaigns and organizations we support to operate in a politically effective manner. It is based on the realization that a long-term partnership with the funing foundation multiply the effectiveness of grants.  Read more ►

Movement workers

Full-time activists are of key importance to the success of social movements. Throughout their years of active involvement, they accumulate experience and skills which are invaluable for political work. We call these people movement workers.  Read more ►
