The Mitsubishi Corporation Fund for Europe and Africa (MCFEA) is a charitable Foundation established in 1992 by Mitsubishi Corporation and its UK-based subsidiary Mitsubishi Corporation International (Europe) Plc. The principal objectives of the Mitsubishi Fund for Europe and Africa are:
- (1) to conserve and protect, for the benefit of the public, the environment as a whole and its animal, forest and plant life in particular and to educate the public in natural history and ecology and the importance of conservation of the environment;
- (2) to advance the education of the public and, in particular, but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing: (a) to promote education and research in the field of ecology and conservation of natural resources and the environment anywhere in the world; (b) to promote the study and appreciation of flora and fauna anywhere in the world with particular emphasis on endangered species; (c) to promote the study and appreciation of agriculture, horticulture, silviculture and land and estate management; (d) to carry out research into the sustainable development of forest lands;
- and (3) to relieve poverty in any part of the world.
The MCFEA has been engaging with partner organisations throughout Europe and Africa, supporting innovative projects that align with its central aims. The MCFEA does not make grants to individuals, neither does it make grants for religious, political or lobbying purposes. It does not support any organization that discriminates on the basis of race, colour, creed, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or handicap, and only makes direct grants and donations to charitable or non-profit organizations or academic institutions.
They operate in Europe and Africa (so far they have funded projects in Romania, Bulgaria, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Guinea, Kenya, and Madagascar).
Their annual funding volume is around £300,000. They are working with a small number of organisations (currently around 20).
Their application period usually runs from October to March. The main time for consideration of projects is two-to-three months leading up to the Annual Meeting of the Trustees of the MCFEA, usually held in July or August of each year, when ongoing and potential future grants are reviewed and considered. The application process is conducted by completing the application form provided online.
