Funding programmes and thematic grant calls

Nearly every year, in addition to the general grant call, Kone Foundation arranges grant calls that are thematically connected to the Foundation’s funding programmes.

Nearly every year, in addition to the general grant call, Kone Foundation arranges grant calls that are thematically connected to the Foundation’s funding programmes. Thematic grant calls are evaluated separately from the general grant call.

Kone Foundation’s current funding programme is called “Is Democracy Eroding?”. The programme aims to increase our collective understanding of democracy and social justice and to bring new perspectives to common notions of democracy.

The first thematic funding call in the programme, organized in 2021, focused on projects that explore the connection between language and democracy.
