1) Objective 

XminY is a globally unique action fund and has supported social movements for more than 45 years. Many of the groups and organisations supported in the past have grown to become well-known organisations involved in mass social movements. XminusY supports social movements, action groups and changemakers who fight for a fair, democratic, sustainable and tolerant world. Grants are to grassroots groups that aim to mobilize and inspire political action. XminusY funds grassroots actions across a range of thematic areas, including good governance and democracy, sustainable development and ecology and the environment. Especially (politically controversial) projects that do not easily find funding elsewhere (e.g. demonstrations, blockades, occupations, direct actions, revolts, revolutions, and other confrontational action) are given funding priority.

2) Eligibility

XminusY supports social movements, actiongroups and changemakers who are fighting for a fair, democratic, sustainable and tolerant world. Projects that are supported by XminusY can take place on a broad variety of topics.

3) Location 

They fund projects worldwide. Their currently funded projects take place in Latin America (Colombia and Honduras), Africa (Kenya, Mali, and Morocco), Asia (Palestine, Israel, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka), and Eastern Europe (Belgium, Bulgaria, Estland, the Netherlands, and Poland).

4) Budget

Individual grant sizes are a maximum of $3,000.

5) Application 

Applications for support may be submitted throughout the year, using the online application system on their website. Applications must contain a description of the proposed project and planned activities and a detailed budget plan. Accepted application languages are Dutch, English, France, German, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Italian, and Arabic. Each proposal will be judged separately and on its own merits. XminusY supports around 130-150 projects per year.
