Democracy and Media Foundation: General Call 2018 – 1

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 28 January 2018

Do you want to contribute to independent media and a strong, just democratic state? Do you have an initiative that stimulates independent and critical media or one that sustains or promotes a strong and just democratic state? Does your initiative match our pillars of truth-seeking, innovation in media, fundamental rights and liberties, vigorous democracy or commemoration and remembrance? If yes, then you are welcome to submit a project proposal for Democracy and Media Foundation’s General Call 2018 – 1.

The statutory objectives of the Democracy and Media Foundation are to counter all forms of totalitarianism in social and political life and to strive for a vigorous democracy and multifaceted, opinionating media. These objectives are rooted in the origin of the Democracy and Media Foundation, which was established in 1944 by the founders of the illegal resistance newspaper Het Parool.

These objectives shaped the foundation’s current mission: to invest in strong, critical media and a strong, just democratic state based on the rule of law. The Democracy and Media Foundation provides financial support to organizations, projects and other initiatives that promote this mission. The foundation can also provide (external) organizational advice and/or bring different initiatives together.

Pillars

  • Truth-seeking
  • Media innovation
  • Fundamental rights and freedoms
  • Vigorous democracy
  • Commemoration and remembrance
