How do you submit an application to the ENGIE Foundation?

The ENGIE Foundation supports projects and associations that enable the integration of children and young people through sport, culture or education. Would you like to submit a file to the ENGIE Foundation ? Here is the procedure to follow...

1. Register on the ENGIE Foundation’s website

Go to the Foundation's home page: Create a profile, check to see if it fulfils the 8 eligibility criteria, and submit your complete and correctly completed application, accompanied by any documents you wish to include.

Good to know: you can save your application temporarily and then carry on working on it at a later date. Once it has been sent, it can no longer be amended.

After a pre-selection round, you will be notified by email whether your project has been approved. If the answer is positive, you will be invited to present your project to the Selection Committee.


2. Present your project to the Selection Committee

The Selection Committee meets once a year. It is made up of experts from the ENGIE Group and external persons from various sectors within civil society.


3. Has your project succeeded?

If your project is selected, you will engage in dialogue with the Foundation to establish how the project can be developed. Signing a contract makes the mutual engagement official.

Has your project been rejected? The members of the Foundation's Selection Committee will clarify why they rejected the project so that you can submit a new project online, according to the acceptability criteria for the subsequent year.


The 8 selection criteria for projects requesting support from ENGIE Foundation

Do you wish to submit a request for support to the ENGIE Foundation? Check the following 8 criteria:

  2. The organisation and project must be rolled-out in Belgium.
  3. The subsidy application must not amount to more than 50% of the overall project budget, nor must it finance working costs.
  4. A maximum 25% of the support may be used for personnel costs.
  5. In the long-term, you are striving for financial independence for the project.
