The Association Fund

Does your association or foundation have an innovative idea – big or small – that can benefit Helsingborg’s association activities and residents? Do you see new opportunities in collaborating with other stakeholders? You can then apply for funding from the Association Fund, which is part of the Vision Fund, and in doing so join in the city’s development and H22 City Expo.

SEK 1 million has been allocated from H22’s budget so that associations and foundations in Helsingborg can work with challenges and develop the association activities of the future. The money will be awarded to organisations with new and innovative ideas linked to one or several of the Sustainable Development Goals. The projects that receive financing will be showcased in some form during H22 City Expo in the summer of 2022.

The amount that can be applied for must be within the Fund’s budget of SEK 1 million, and applications can be submitted on an ongoing basis. The applications received are reviewed by a committee made up of representatives for H22 and the city’s departments and enterprises.

Here you can find more information and a link to the application.
