Checkpoint Charlie Foundation

The Checkpoint Charlie Foundation can provide financial, intellectual and/or logistical support to bilateral exchange and engagement projects between Berlin and the United States of America. The foundation accepts applications for project grants throughout the year. Projects may be approved for funding if they comply with the goals of the foundation, its funding guidelines, and application procedures. Only the executive board of the foundation has the power to decide which projects will be funded. There is no legal entitlement to funding from the foundation. The executive board meets about once every quarter to consider grant applications. Applications must be submitted no later than two weeks before the respective board meeting to be considered. 

Aims and Principles
  1. The foundation supports projects that promote and strengthen German-American relations. The role which the United States of America played in Berlin from 1945 to 1994 will be given special attention. The foundation develops its own projects and accepts grant applications from other organizations.
  2. The following guidelines are binding for both the applicant and the Foundation.

Rules for Awarding Grants
  1. Only activities of non-governmental organizations will be subsidized. Support of activities by individuals requires a special justification.
  2. Support will concentrate on conferences, discussions, general exchanges between citizens of both countries and publications that promote German-American relations.
  3. Subsidized activities may not serve commercial interests or purposes.
