Board of directors
The Board of Directors is the highest decision-making body in the company except when it comes to issues which, according to law or the Articles of Association, must be reserved for shareholders.
Your application for support must fit in with the Foundation's philosophy and its actions. In order to be eligible, your request must fulfil certain criteria that are specific to the ENGIE Foundation (see: Criteria). Adapt your document accordingly. It would be a shame if your application was rejected simply for 'administrative reasons’.
Extra tip: only send your application once you are sure that you have fulfilled the Foundation’s requirements. Make sure that you have met the Foundation’s selection criteria. Responding to a call for projects is a good opportunity to see things in a broader perspective and to assess the way in which your organisation works.
The Foundation's website explains the expectations and conditions you must fulfil in order to obtain support. It is also important that each project is realistic and feasible given the time, budget and the available resources.
Complete your application on www.projets.fondation-engie.com and closely follow the instructions which are given on the pre-filled form.
This framework allows the jury to work objectively and efficiently, particularly when dozens of applications are received simultaneously.
Your application must contain all of the useful elements which will enable the assessors to gain a clear overview of the nature and impact of the proposed project and also make direct contact with the project leader to gain further information.
Your application must be complete and to the point. What information is vital?
In your document, prioritise the project’s emotional, human aspects.
A moving, sensitive, personal application will always have a greater impact than a factual description. But don't get overly sentimental! Explain your connection with the project and explain the impact this project will have on solidarity, humanity and/or society.
Don't hesitate to add documents, statements and/or press articles which set out the impact of your project in a social context.
