PlanetRomeo Foundation is an independent, registered non-profit organisation established in 2009 to contribute to the fight for equal rights and opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people. The Foundation supports projects that aim to improve the position of LGBTI people all over the world, with emphasis on the most disadvantaged communities and locations. PlanetRomeo Foundation envisions a world without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity; a world in which LGBTI people have the same rights and opportunities as anyone else; a world which values and respects differences in sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.
Projects focus on:
- LGBTI+ groups or organizations with little or no access to other sources of funding
- Community Organizing
- Sports & Culture
Non-profit organisations that promote the rights of the LGBTI people are eligible to apply. Eligible to receive funding are projects initiated by the LGBTI community which aim to involve, mobilize and activate that same community. They preferably are small-scale grassroots projects.
Although all geographical regions are eligible, the Foundation gives priority to countries outside the Global North. Within a country, all geographical areas are eligible, but where they can, they give priority to rural and/or more remote areas.
PlanetRomeo Foundation provides funding up to € 6,000 to LGBTI+ projects and initiatives to the LGBTI community. Funding is limited to one grant per organization.
Deadlines to hand in an application are 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October. After these dates, the board will start reviewing the batch. All applicants will receive notice of approval or refusal. As they have a limited budget, only the most impactful, relevant and feasible projects will be approved. After the application has been approved, they will request the necessary documents: proof of registration of the organisation, a recent bank statement of the organisation and a copy of the passport or (refugee) identity document of the person authorized to sign on behalf of the organisation. The process can take up to 3 months.
