The foundation will provide financial support to people and projects, not only in Singapore but globally, where their goals are aligned with those of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The goals address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.

WHAT WE FUND

Types of Project

A significant percentage of the grants awarded are made on a one-off basis for capital purposes.

Most grants are directed towards specific projects which will meet a clearly defined and demonstrable need within the applicant charity’s beneficiary/client group which cannot be met from statutory sources. Evidence of longer-term sustainability goals is an important factor in decision-making.


You should refer to the grant-making criteria before making an application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Applying for Funding. When should I apply?

The Eden Foundation has a rolling application process, without application deadlines. Applications may, therefore, be submitted at any time throughout the year.

Who can apply?

The Eden Foundation will consider all applications from charities, organisations, and individuals. The foundation will provide financial support to people and projects, not only in Singapore but globally, where their goals are aligned with those of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

How much should I ask for? Do you fund projects in full?

We advise applicants to set out the total cost, along with all documents laid out in the application process, this will allow the Trustees to find their own level within this; they will rarely fund a project in full. Grants awarded may be for specific items within the budget or a general contribution towards the overall cost.

May we discuss our application with you before we apply?

You may contact the grant staff via email to discuss the elements of a proposal before it is submitted. We are unfortunately unable to meet with applicants before an application is submitted.

Will my application be acknowledged?

Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to acknowledge receipt of each individual application.

How long does to take to make a decision?

The Trustees meet on a regular basis. There are no formal deadlines for submitting applications and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Will you inform me of the outcome of my application, whatever the outcome?

We inform all applicants of the outcome of their application via email provided

Do you visit apllicants?

Due to the high volume of applications and the geographical spread, we are unable to visit all applicants. You will receive a phone call if a visit is required, or if any additional information or clarification is required to enable us to assess your application.

Post Award

How do we publicly acknowledge the grant from the Eden Foundation?

Eden Foundation does not actively seek publicity for the grants which they make. However, we are happy to be acknowledged on a donor's board or in a donor list within a charity's Annual Report and Accounts.

We already have a grant from you. When may we reapply?

We ask grant-holders to wait twelve months from the date of your last payment before making a fresh application to the Foundation. Please also ensure you have sent your final progress and impact report before re-applying.

 

How to apply

There is no Pro-forma application form but we do ask applicants to download and complete an application cover sheet. Link below.


The application cover sheet should be accompanied by a covering letter and concise project proposal, about 3 - 4 pages in length, which should include the following information:

  • Description of the project/activity for which funding is sought; this should identify the need the project addresses and the difference it will make.

  • A detailed budget breakdown

  • Fundraising plan, to include anticipated sources of funding, funds already secured and plans for securing the shortfall (including any loan arrangements, sale of assets, etc)

  • Arrangements for monitoring and evaluating the project

  • How your project/activity/business model reflects the UN Sustainable Development Goals
