Project applications and donations

    alt txt



    We participate exclusively in projects that are compatible with the purpose of the foundation, our guiding principles and the following guidelines.


    Please note:
    Our project budgets are limited and earmarked for our own, topic-specific projects. We are unable to provide financial resources for other projects brought to us from outside sources.

    Our projects

    • start with knowledge on “people at risk” and lead to action.
    • are groundbreaking and exemplary, provide the necessary impulses and are open to emulation.
    • tap into potential for sustainable development in global change.
    • should be placed in a broader context (linking various topics).
    • indicate long-term solutions.
    • prepare people for risks and improve their living conditions.
    • can be regional, national or international.
    • have model character and can be replicated.

    Donations for our projects are welcome. Bank details will be provided on request. The Munich Re Foundation is recognised as a non-profit organisation. Donations are deductible under German tax law. Should you require written confirmation of donations, please supply your full name and address.
