Shared Cultural Heritage: Matching Fund

Dutch organisations are eligible to apply at the Matching Fund for shared heritage activities.

The Ministries of Foreign Affairs and of Education, Culture and Science have made funds available for shared cultural heritage activities via the Dutch embassies and DutchCulture. DutchCulture has a sum of 200,000 per year at its disposal for shared heritage activities by Dutch legal entities. An important aim for the Matching Fund is the promotion of and coherence in shared heritage activities. Coherence is created by central themes, such as the historical city centre, water management and historical perceptions. The Shared Cultural Heritage programme council will advise on the allocation of the funds available. 

If you think you are eligible for the Matching Funds, it is highly recommended that you contact the responsible staff member at DutchCulture before you send in your application. 

The next deadline of the Matching Fund is 17 January 2021. There will be a second deadline in October 2021 (date to be confirmed). The criteria will be published on this page by 9 November 2020. Keep an eye on this page and subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
