Community Engagement Grant
Ever since the humble beginning in 1944, Grundfos has been going an extra mile to reach out to the vulnerable groups in society. The Poul Due Jensen Community Engagement Grant aims to support local Grundfos companies' engagement and collaboration with NGOs, institutions, authorities and philanthropic initiatives in locations where Grundfos operates.

The Poul Due Jensen Community Engagement Grant was created to help Grundfos reach out locally. In essence, it is meant to strengthen and reinforce Grundfos’ tradition for reaching out in the local community and acting as a good neighbour, wherever in the world we operate.

"The Foundation has put aside a 20m DKK reserve for 2020, primarily for COVID-19-related local outreach, but in time, we also hope to see local projects who contribute to social and labour market inclusion or climate change mitigation."
Kim Nøhr Skibsted, Executive Director
  • As the Foundation cannot donate to Grundfos companies, it is important that the activities are carried out in partnership with a local organisation.
  • The Foundation must be credited in communication about the projects (i.e. press releases, signposting, or in other media).

How to apply

Projects and initiatives supported by the Grant must be in line with the six values defining how Grundfos operates.

  • Grundfos companies who wish to reach out in their local community may submit an application (intranet link) on behalf of their local partner(s).
  • Applications are evaluated on an on-going basis. The Grundfos Group Sustainability & Engagement team evaluates all proposals before they are proposed to the Foundation Secretariat & Board for approval.
