request for support

If your project fits the general criteria of the Iona Stichting you can send us a request for support. We appreciate heart felt applications with a clear motivation.

Please read this carefully before you apply. It is important that you know which information is required. We want to make you attentive to the fact that the project description you are requested to enclose is of vital importance.

when to apply

The complete application should have reached us at least 14 days before the next board meeting. We do not take applications into consideration when the project has already started or taken place.

each application is different

Each request for support is different and deserves our carefull consideration. It can happen that a project on our list with donations seems similar to your initiative. However, no rights can be derived from this.

no pre-applications

We do not take pre-applications into consideration. If you are in doubt whether your project fits our criteria, please contact our office.

project evaluation

To give us insight in the progress of the projects we have supported and to see what is the best way for our foundation to assist our applicants we ask you to send us an evaluation report. We will send you an email with the necessary information and required details three months after you have completed the project.

Concerning long term projects we require a half-yearly evaluation report.

We are interested in the personal story behind your project. However, we do have certain directions for your project report.

We can only consider new applications after receipt of an evaluation of the former one.


Only complete applications that have reached the office at least 14 days before the date of a board meeting can be put on the agenda.
