The Grundfos Foundation has approved new Community Engagement Grants worth EUR 605,000 to support local projects across Denmark, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

Nine new Grundfos Foundation Community Engagement Grants were awarded in June to support local communities worldwide. The majority of the grants will benefit underprivileged communities on the African continent.

Thus far in 2022, grants worth approximately EUR 1.8m (13.5 million DKK) have been approved out of the EUR 2.7m (20 million DKK) total allocated in 2022 for support to community engagement by Grundfos companies. Of the extra EUR 672,000 (DKK 5 million) earmarked for the Ukraine crisis, EUR 120,000 (~DKK 900,000) are still available.
