Do you have a humanitarian project in mind?

Every year, the Wavestone Foundation organizes a call for projects.

The Foundation supports projects designed to help disadvantaged children, particularly in situations of poverty or extreme hardship, in France or abroad. It finances the creation and development of programs designed to combat all forms of poverty, and supports the development of actions in the fields of prevention, education and health.

Each year, it also selects a small number of charitable organizations to support in the running of a program of action for disadvantaged children.

The Foundation may also be called upon to finance emergency missions, as it did recently in connection with the conflict in Ukraine and the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

During the call for projects, charities will be able to propose projects in the 2 categories below.

Please note that emergency cases are not included in this call for projects.

Classic project: setting up development or support actions

This includes projects designed to initiate or implement development, and support initiatives for disadvantaged children. In this case, the Foundation is particularly attentive to the long-term impact of the proposed projects (sustainability) and to the principle of empowering the beneficiaries.

Special projects: support for potentially longer-term/multi-year action programs

A special budget is set aside each year for a limited number of charitable organizations that require funding for more recurrent actions (e.g., regular childcare and follow-up) and the associated operating costs. These projects are selected on an ad hoc basis by the pre-selection committee.

The Foundation’s approach is one of co-financing. It will not subsidize more than 50% of the total cost of a project, up to a maximum of €10,000 per project.

Applicants must be based in France or in a country where Wavestone has an office: Belgium, the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, Luxembourg, Morocco, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

Applications will be analyzed by a pre-selection committee of Wavestone employees, which will meet between October 2023 and early 2024. The list of projects selected by the Board of Directors will be announced no later than March 2024.

Call for projects

The Wavestone Foundation’s call for projects will be open from 16/06/2023 to 15/09/2023 midnight. Charities will be able to apply and submit their projects via the project submission platform.
