Funds for activities

In the activity pool, you can apply for grants for activities that help to promote cultural and leisure activities or other activities.

Associations, circles or citizens can take part in the Activity Pool, which supports activities that promote cultural and leisure activities as well as other popular activities that are not supported through other pools.

This can be, for example, participation in rallies, materials, holding events.

The application deadline is 1 September.

What activities can you apply for a grant for?

Grants can be applied for for events held in the calendar year where applications are made or planned for the season (but no later than the end of June the following year).

Among other things, apply for a grant for:

  • Activities that are initiated in connection with an association, district or group of citizens
  • Participation in rallies, cups, etc., which is not part of the usual process for an enlightening association. Among other things, Grants are awarded for event fees and driving.
  • Materials / props etc. of a public information nature can be applied for by associations, clubs and circles that cannot apply for or receive grants from the Sønderborg Scheme.
  • Holding of activities / events - e.g. rallies, music events, cultural events, etc.
  • Support for Folkeuniversitetsarrangementer.

No subsistence allowance can be granted. Direct grants or loss guarantees can be given, and grants are paid in the financial year in which the deadline is.
