Information on submitting project proposals to the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Israel
- The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is a nonprofit ideological body subject to the German government’s administrative regulations and mandated by the German Parliament.
- The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is a “foundation” in the sense of the German word “Stiftung” rather than the sense of the English word “fund.” In other words, the foundation is not a philanthropic, donating or funding body but rather an active organization that works as a Think and Do Tank.
- Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Israel initiates its own projects or cooperates with official institutions and organizations but not with private individuals.
- As part of the partnerships the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung chooses to enter, it carries project costs together with its partner institutions and subject to the foundation’s regulations.
- Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Israel acts for the Israeli public and is involved solely in projects for the welfare of that target audience.
- As an ideological body the foundation aims its activity at adults capable of political thinking and understanding.
- Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung operates on the basis of annual budgets. Therefore, proposals for the next financial year should be submitted between October 1 and November 15 of the current year (for example, a proposal for a project for 2018 should be submitted by November 15, 2017).
- The proposal should be submitted in writing in English with a form that can be downloaded here: Project Proposal for 2018
