Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be German registered associations, who are involved in development cooperation and recognized by the tax office as a charitable organization. For an application, it is a requirement that this organization are working with a local NGO.
  • The German institution is responsible for the administration and coordination and is accountable to the Foundation.
  • The funds of the ERBACHER Foundation are preferably distributed to the following projects:
    • Projects from congregations or small to medium-sized organizations and associations who run or support projects of development aid thanks to the belief and enthusiasm of members with expert knowledge.
    • Projects following the principle of “help for self-help”.
    • Projects personally familiar to the members of the Erbacher family or the decision-making body (trust is an important criterion).
    • Projects that appear worth supporting to us but cannot be supported by bigger relief organizations.
    • Projects that have transparent and clear financing plans.
    • Projects whose financing plans promises a good cost-benefit-ratio.
    • Projects whose financing does not solely depend on the ERBACHER Foundation but whose financing is also safeguarded
    • through other investors as well as personal contributions (also non-monetary involvement of the local people).
    • Projects, whose consequential costs – in case they should result – are already considered ahead of time within the financing plan.
    • Projects that are completely or for the most part under responsibility and/or with cooperation of the local people. This needs to be the objective at least.
    • Projects benefitting an individual are only worthy of our foundation’s support in case of a transfer of knowledge (Purpose of the foundation 4c). A project should normally benefit a whole group of people.
    • Projects with respect to science and research that contribute to rural development (student’s projects as well).
