HOW THE FUND WORKS
APPLY FOR SUBSIDY
According to the statutes of the dike and faggot disco De Trut, all profits made have to be spent on small-scale, non-commercial dike, faggot, trans, queer and HIV/AIDS projects which do not receive any or little subsidies from elsewhere. After deducting the operating costs made by disco De Trut, the resulting figure is put at the disposal of the committee of De Trut Fund Foundation.
The committee exists of at least five members of Association De Trut. Three of the five members function as the governing body of De Trut Fund Foundation. The committee meets every two months. During those meetings the committee decides which of the applications received qualify for subsidy. (Applications are done online. You can find more information below concerning the how and what.) In the event the committee grants a subsidy, the applicant is informed in writing and the subsidy is paid.
There is considerable variation in the applications from over the whole world that have been sponsored by De Trut Fund Foundation. Some of the projects subsidized by De Trut Fund Foundation include HIV/AIDS information, leaflets for dike and faggot groups in South America, projects for the support and care of people suffering from AIDS, and many others. Of course, De Trut Fund Foundation is not only open to foreign applications. Also in ‘Liberal Holland’ there are many queer projects to subsidize. Dutch projects subsidized vary from staged plays, exhibitions concerning exceptional people, book publishing, workshops, supporting youth groups, film festivals, etc.
You can apply for subsidy via this website. To apply, the form at the bottom of this section needs to be completed in full and returned to De Trut Fund Foundation with all relevant information concerning the project. Legal bodies are advised to enclose yearly accountant’s statements for the last 3 years. Requests can only be sent by e-mail to email@example.com
Your subsidy request will be discussed and decided upon at the committee’s first meeting after your submission. De Trut Fund Foundation is a small fund, and we therefore we have to be critical in our judgment. If you want to apply for subsidy, keep in mind that the committee meets once every two months. If we need more info concerning a subsidy request, it may lead to delays in the time it will take to make a decision.
You can request subsidy for a broad range of causes, but keep in mind that the cause will always have to serve a homo-emancipatory goal. Furthermore it has to be small-scale, and the subsidy will have to be substantial for the project. Small- or big-scale commercial projects do not stand a chance due to salary payments and travel expanses, which we do not subsidize. Subsidizes are usually distributed in one payment.
In the event subsidy is granted we request that the name of Stichting Fonds de Trut be explicitly mentioned as a sponsor of the project. In that way we can generate knowledge of De Trut Fund Foundation and bring it to the attention of more potential subsidy applicants. We would also like to receive a financial review at the end of the project.
