A new fund for peace!

Funding for peace initiativesHi Funds Fans!  A new fund 🙂  And a wonderful one too.

The Niwano Peace Foundation promotes interreligious understanding and cooperation. It also strives to strengthen cooperation among people actively making continuing efforts, in a religious spirit, to achieve a peaceful society. The Foundation does not support any specific religious group.
Respecting the uniqueness of each religion and embracing the spirit of tolerance, it aims to build a world of peace and coexistence. The Foundation makes grants in order to provide active encouragement for activities undertaken in a religious spirit and conducted in such a way as to invite broad social participation.
An application may be made by either an individual or an organization.  Nationality is not a criterion for eligibility.  Any group which has been in continuous existence for a reasonable length of time is eligible to apply, whether or not it is legally incorporated.
The maximum amount for Activity Grants 1,000,000 yen. Deadline: April 30th, 2014.
