Föreningsfonden - The Association Fund

Do you run an association or a foundation and have an innovative idea which can benefit Helsingborg’s association life and residents? There’s a new funding program in the city - and it’s just for you!

Föreningsfonden (The association fund) by H22 aims to enable initiatives that will contribute to the development of association life in the city and to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). If you have an innovative idea and can collaborate with others to implement your idea, you can get funding to not only implement it but also be a part of the H22 City expo.

SEK 1 million has been set aside from the H22 budget and will be distributed to organizations that have innovative ideas based on one or more of the global goals. Projects which receive the support will be showcased in some way or the other during the H22 City Expo, which is due to take place next year in the summer.
