PIMCO's commitments go beyond investment management. In addition to focusing on meeting our responsibilities to the people and institutions who rely on us to manage their retirement and investment assets, we contribute to the communities where we work and live by giving our time and resources through The PIMCO Foundation.
2016 Request for Proposals
The PIMCO Foundation Europe is currently seeking proposals for its 2016 Grant Programme. This year’s programme will provide funding of up to £10,000 for charities which align with one of the Foundation’s giving themes:
Food insecurity: We seek out organisations focused on providing children and families with access to healthy, nutritious meals.
Homelessness: We support proven programmes that equip individuals and families at risk of, or currently experiencing, homelessness with access to long-term, sustainable housing.
Youth Unemployment: We seek to support work-readiness organisations that are focused on driving social mobility and developing young people’s (ages 16 to 24) employability skills. Consideration will be given to charities focused on preparing individuals for employment, and developing skills that contribute to economic well-being.
How to apply to the PIMCO Foundation Europe Grant Programme
All application materials must be submitted via the online application portal, which will be open starting 1 February and ending 31 March 2016. Notifications of awards will be made by June for a 2017 programme year.
Applications must include a detailed narrative to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposal with such information as qualifications of the agency and key personnel, implementation plan, timeline and financial information.
Proposals will be initially evaluated by a PIMCO employee review committee to determine the extent to which they meet this grant programme’s criteria. The final decision on awards under the programme will be made by the Board of PIMCO Foundation Europe.
