The Foundation funds a small number of projects which are identified through our networks, relationships and research. We seek to be a proactive funder and do not accept unsolicited applications.
We recognise that the best way to provide support for a project is to tap into the experience, expertise and knowledge of local groups and other similarly minded organisations in order to achieve success. We know that in this way we are collaborating with passionate and dedicated people. Badur understands that local projects are the best delivery mechanisms for change and we seek to work in partnership with them rather than “go it alone”.
Sustainability of projects is a key feature of our work and we aim to nurture organisations to become more self-reliant. In funding projects which provide examples of good practice for other organisations, we hope they will act as catalysts for local communities, attract other sources of funding and therefore be replicated in other geographical areas.
As mentioned above, we identify potential new projects through our own trustees, research and networks but if you genuinely believe that your project fits with the work of the Foundation, you may send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your organisation and its work.
Currently we only fund projects based in the UK, Hungary and Laos.
There are some things we don’t fund at all, so in order to save you time, please check our exclusion list below.
