The Rights Now Foundation has limited capacity to answer questions promptly. Please find answers to frequent questions below.
What kind of organizations and projects do you support?
Please find information about organizations and projects supported by the Rights Now foundation on the website.
Note that all projects supported are implemented by non-profit organizations and that education, training and awareness raising normally forms a central component of any project. We may also allocate grants for, for example, meals, education materials, fees, venues and transport – as these may promote knowledge sharing, participation and learning.
Can a project or activity supported by the Rights Now foundation be implemented anywhere in the world?
Yes. We support projects worldwide. All projects must however fulfil the foundation’s criteria for receiving grant funding.
We have a project that isn’t active yet – can we apply for support?
Yes of course!
How much funding can we expect from Rights Now? What is a normal grant size?
Grants from the Rights Now Foundation vary in size – normally somewhere between 25 000 – 300 000 Swedish crowns, depending on project size and content (corresponding to approximately 3 000 – 35 000 USD per project).
When are decisions made about applications?
The Rights Now foundation’s review process is normally completed in January each year. All applicant organizations will receive an answer, whether grants have been allocated or not.
How does the application process work?
To apply for a grant please fill in the application form available on this website (see link, which is available during the application period). After the application period ends on 31 October, the board will review all applications and decide which project or activity to support.
When are notices concerning decisions sent out?
Decisions regarding grants are normally made in January each year. All applicant organizations will receive an answer, often in January/February, whether grants have been allocated or not.
Important: The contact information submitted must be correct for us to be able to communicate with you.
When will we be able to receive the grant, in case the application is approved?
On the condition that all necessary information has been submitted to the foundation and that the grant letter has been signed and returned to us, grants can normally be transferred to the organization in February.
Can the same organization send in multiple applications?
Yes. However, each project or activity has to be described separately in its own application form.
Can I send a request for grants via e-mail?
Please use the application form on this website, which is available during the application period, from 1 July to 31 October.

The Rights Now Foundation is responsible for and processes personal data relating to physical persons communicating and sharing personal information with Rights Now Foundation via digital channels (e.g. website and email).
The Rights Now Foundation shall handle personal information correctly and in accordance with applicable laws and rules for data protection. Rights Now Foundation is open with why and in what manner the personal data will be processed.
PERSONAL DATA TO BE STORED
Personal data that may be processed and stored when the user communicates with the Rights Now Foundation via website or email include, for example: name, postal and E-mail addresses, IP address, phone numbers, organizational information, personal information that might appear in the project description, application and reports submitted.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA IS USED FOR
The following explains the purpose of processing personal data.
The Rights Now Foundation processes personal information in order to for example review and follow up applications for grants through the website. Other purposes may be to communicate or track previous contacts with the applicant or stakeholders who actively chose to contact the Rights Now Foundation. The data will not be shared to third parties or used for other purposes that the applicant has not clearly chosen and accepted to take part of.
The communication between the website visitor and the Rights Now Foundation contains a consent clause whereby the applicant may voluntarily consent to the Rights Now Foundation processing the registered personal data for the purposes stated above. This consent may be revoked by the applicant.
The Rights Now Foundation will ensure that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are taken to protect personal data against abuse, destruction and loss through accident or unauthorized disclosure. If the Rights Now Foundation employs a third party to provide the Rights Now Foundation with services that include the processing of personal data the Rights Now Foundation will ensure that such partners apply appropriate security measures and treat only personal data as the Rights Now Foundation has approved.
When transferring information via the internet, security can never be guaranteed. Although the Rights Now Foundation implements security measures for the protection of personal data, the Rights Now Foundation cannot guarantee absolute security for information that the applicant transfers to the Rights Now Foundation website. All data transfer is therefore carried out on the applicant’s own risk. Once the Rights Now Foundation has received information, the Rights Now Foundation will apply strict procedures and security measures to prevent unauthorized access.
