Grants for Empowerment of People with Disabilities

The ABILIS Foundation provides grants ranging from €500 to €10,000 for projects initiated by organizations that are run by persons who have a disability. Organizations that are run by parents of children with disabilities can also apply.

The ABILIS Foundation in Finland supports activities that contribute toward equal opportunities for people with disabilities in society through human rights, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. Special priority is given to projects advocating for human rights of people with disabilities and to activities developed and implemented by women with disabilities.
