The Prince Claus Fund offers financial support to individuals and organisations who implement outstanding cultural initiatives, primarily in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean & Eastern Europe. 

We do this through open calls for applications. Open calls each have their own procedures and may be open at different times of year. Our Cultural Emergency Response programme is open to applications for urgent help to rescue threatened cultural heritage whenever a critical situation looms.
