Since the start of the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign, thousands of people have attended events across Europe and the rest of the world.
Organisers have ensured that the important messages of the campaign are heard across the globe. It only takes one person to start the process of organising an event – that person could be you!
European Lung Foundation (ELF) offers grants to support Healthy Lungs for Life activities.
Not-for-profit organisations, patient groups and healthcare professionals can apply for a grant of up to €1,000 to support events and activities that meet one or more of the aims of the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign:
During the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual public lung function testing events may not be possible in your country. Instead, event organisers could choose to hold campaigns online. Examples of events and activities, could include, but are not limited to:
The grants could be used to produce materials or PR support to help with promotion of the event or other relevant tasks that help with the running of the event. Priority will be given to applications covering areas where there is a greater need for awareness of the importance of lung health and to low-resource settings.
Applications are now open and will stay open, so you can apply for a grant at any time. Each year, there will be two cut off dates:
At each cut-off date, the ELF team will collect all applications submitted since the previous cut-off date, anonymise them and send them to the Healthy Lungs for Life team for judging. The applications that the team consider to have the most impact will be offered a grant.
We encourage applicants to link activities to awareness days related to their chosen topics.
