Sorry, you do not qualify

Sofronie are currently only considering proposals for grants if your organisation is a registered charity or not for profit association and your work is focused on young people from disadvantaged backgrounds based in the UK, France or the Netherlands.

Unsuccessful applications

Unfortunately we will disappoint some grant seekers. However, the criteria on which the Sofronie Foundation assesses applications may change over time and therefore we may be able to offer funding in the future. Any change in application criteria will be outlined on our website.

If your project matches our criteria and you are not offered funding, it may be that we have used our budget for the year and therefore you could try again the following year.
