Description of the funding initiative

The Becht Foundation allocates grants to activities or organisations which halt, reverse or at least materially mitigate negative impacts on natural environment and on the health and prosperity of species and people. Within this broad area, the main focus is marine conservation. The foundation supports projects around the world, including in Europe.

In addition, the foundation invests part of its assets in profit-making companies with a social charter consistent with its objectives. 

Overview of eligibility requirements for applicants

  • Provision of a phased budget alongside a timetable for KPI achievement.
