Current application process for "Social" funding requests

A uniform processing and approval procedure applies to grant applications from the "Social Affairs" foundation area.


The Adalbert-Raps-Stiftung retains the processing and approval procedure from last year. This will continue to ensure a fair funding decision towards all applicants.

The application process for your project proposal

We want to continue to live up to the standards we set for our funding activities. With the current processing and approval procedure, we are pursuing the goal of being able to process all incoming applications promptly, thus enabling applicants to plan more easily.
