Projects Funding

REPUBLIC AND STATE OF GENEVA

The Geneva State authorities have developed active policies in support of international solidarity, on the following legal basis:

Financial support from the State of Geneva is project based and does not cover operating expenses of the requesting organisation. It is complementary to other public and private contributions.

FIELD BASED Projects

Requests for funding for field projects must be submitted to the International Solidarity Service of the State of Geneva (SSI). The main fields are :

  • Development aid
  • Humanitarian aid
  • Decentralized cooperation
  • Environment issues

The procedure of request for funding and list of recently funded projects are available on SSI website.

GENEVA BASED Projects

Request to fund projects related to an event organised by an NGO in the context of International Geneva (seminar, conference, training...) can be submitted to the International Solidarity Service. Financial support will cover travel and accommodation costs of persons from developing countries attending the event. It is important therefore that those delegates acquire knowledge and skills that they can use and transfer once they returned to their homes.
