Increasing impact and visibility through non-financial support

Friday, 12 April 2019

The crisis in Greece prompted us to fundamentally rethink our strategy and how we could best meet the growing social needs for the finite resources of the Bodossaki Foundation. An important part of our new approach was to extend our support beyond traditional grant-making to include a range of non-financial support to civil society organisations.

The Zero Project – Evolution of an inclusive conference

Friday, 8 March 2019

I really do believe that, whether, for example, to do with personal assistance, the deinstitutionalisation of children with disabilities, making voting truly accessible, or developing the technology to help persons with disabilities live independently, as Martin Essl exhorted us on the first day: “If everyone here in this room takes just one idea that he or she learns about and brings it to life, we can change the world over 700 TIMES. And inspire!”

Kone Foundation, based In Helsinki, Finland, funds research in humanities, social sciences, environmental sciences, as well as artistic research, but since we appreciate crossdisciplinarity, we consider it important to fund projects which combine approaches from these fields. This is what our thematic funding call in 2018, entitled Our Vital Neighbours, was about.

“Empowered girls, empowered futures” – It is not a dream!

Friday, 19 October 2018

At the Aydın Dogan Foundation we have been working on the education and empowerment of girls for more than 15 years now. The UN’s declaration of October 11th as the International Day of the Girl Child in 2012 has given us a new opportunity to bring into focus the importance of girls’ education and empowerment.
