The KR Foundation is currently accepting letter of inquiries (LOIs) for its grant program from eligible organisations to address root causes of climate change and environmental degradation, and safeguard the planetary boundaries.

The mission of KR Foundation is to help provide answers to, stimulate mind shifts about, and encourage action on, the long-term challenges faced by current and future generations living on a planet with finite resources, fragile ecosystems, and climate change.

Eligibility

KR Foundation address root causes of climate change and environmental degradation, through supporting activities that:

  • provide scalable solutions with a clear international perspective and a significant impact
  • have a holistic and interdisciplinary approach, including activities that aim to change mind-sets and behaviour
  • have convening power, facilitate cooperation between key stakeholders and help to link existing research and knowledge to action
  • help catalyze desired political processes at an international level and support new leadership (top-down approach) as well as activities aiming to communicate and create awareness (bottom-up approach)
  • take risks and potentially contribute to transformative and systemic change, and challenge conventional wisdom by exploring alternative and creative approaches

  • Issues other than climate change and environmental degradation
  • For-profit organizations and activities
  • Candidates for political office
  • Individual government organizations at the national, regional or local level, including provincial and city administrations
  • Individuals, e.g. scholarships
  • Capital construction or endowment campaigns
  • Establishing new organizations, institutes or centers with KR Foundation as sole funder
