The Swedish Postcode Foundation’s vision is to contribute to a sustainable development for people, animals and nature by supporting charitable projects in Sweden and internationally. Our project support is distributed towards two main thematic areas: people’s living conditions and the environment. We support limited duration projects where the main selection criteria is that they should address current challenges and be able to demonstrate sustainable results.
As a beneficiary of the Swedish Postcode Lottery the Swedish Postcode Foundation takes part in the annual distribution of lottery surplus to charity.
The Swedish Postcode Foundation provides financial support to a variety of projects across both geographical and thematic boundaries. The projects usually last one year and range from grassroots to policy level. This variation creates positive changes through a dynamic multitude of actions and effects on several levels.
Providing financial support is a central part of the Swedish Postcode Foundation’s work. But on some occasions we can also help with contacts and suggest collaborations that develop organisations and their projects. A number of initiatives have been supported where different actors have worked together to achieve a greater impact.
It is important for the Swedish Postcode Foundation to work closely with the organisations that receive project support. This is partly because it becomes easier to share the knowledge, but also so they can inspire each other to find new solutions
