Seed Funding

Besides actively taking part in civil society discourses, the CFEU Core Team offers seed funding for projects with democratic innovation potential and provides its members with flexible small-scale project grants (3-10k EUR) and small mobility grants (up to 500 EUR). The Core Team comprises of grant makers and grantees who collectively decide about any support given.

Small-scale project grants (3-10k EUR)

Support is given on a rolling basis and through calls, available in the News section of this Website. Please also check third party resources made available to the community in the Resource section!

Mobility Grants (up to 500 EUR)

In order to initiate and maintain sustainable networks, having the possibility to meet peers across Europe in real life is essential. To that end, and because we know that financial resources are often scarce for European CSOs, we offer Mobility Grants allowing you to exchange with fellow activists, or participate in strategic meetings/events that you couldn’t attend otherwise.

If you would like to request a Travel Grant, please send us a short description of the event you’re planning to attend, stating very briefly and informally its relevance to your organisations’ objectives and how it would positively impact your work. After a quick review and green light from the Core Team, three conditions will have to be met: We can support your trip, provided you

  • have an up to date account on the Website
  • produce and upload to your account a short journalistic article (approx. 500 words) after the event for the Citizens for Europe community to learn more about your opinion and/or insights
  • provide the copy of the travel documents (flight/ train/ hotel)

Please be aware that we can only reimburse you if all of the points above-mentioned are met within 2 weeks after the event actually took place. Should you have further questions, please let us know at
