What We Do
Small Change for Europe
You have ideas for Europe? We give something to it!
With Small Change for Europe, we quickly and easily support good ideas and projects that deal with Europe politically, artistically and socially.
The aim of the Toepfer Foundation is to support individuals, groups or institutions in the realization of their projects in an unbureaucratic and speedy manner. Driven by the conviction that even small changes can have a big impact, the foundation provides smaller funding amounts (up to 5,000 euros) and offers the use of various premises if required.
For funding applications that do not relate to Small Change for Europe, please refer to the Toepfer Foundation's general funding conditions.
