Kone Foundation organizes, during its autumn 2020 funding round, a supplementary funding call. It is intended for projects already funded by the foundation whose work has been hindered or impaired by the COVID-19 pandemic during the spring of 2020, and caused financial impact on grantees’ work.

The projects that are eligible to apply

  • must have received payments from Kone Foundation OR
  • must have executed activities / planned to execute activities which are funded by Kone Foundation

during the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring and summer of 2020.

Short personal supplementary grants (additional months) for max. 4 months and funding for other expences (the applicant may specify the expences) can be awarded in the call.

The period during which the grant can be used is the same as the original project’s. Supplementary funding cannot be applied for extending the original project.

The application form must include an accurate description of the effects of the pandemic on the project’s work and finances. In addition, an updated research or work plan and a budget are obligatory attachments. CV’s, portfolios, degree certificates etc. are not needed as attachments.
