Apply for support

All charitable organizations can apply for support from Biltema Foundation by filling in our application form. The response time may vary depending on the type of project the application concerns. If the application is for a larger sum of money, the foundation must discuss this at a two-year meeting.

Therefore, the board gives advice on what further documentation is required after the application has been processed.
