Dream Building Fund powered by GSD Call Opens

Applications for the Dream Building Fund powered by the Foundation for Global Sports Development (GSD) will be open from August 1 to September 29, 2021.



Sponsoring field projects that aim to solve problems within local communities using Table Tennis, the Dream Building Fund powered by GSD is a biennial open call for initiatives that contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Since its inception in 2018, the Fund has supported 11 projects across five continents.

The call for the new round of projects starting 2022 opens on August 1, 2021 and will be closed on September 29, 2021. Grant for individual projects ranges from EUR 10,000 – 35,000.


Eligible projects

You are invited to apply if you are a legally established and locally recognised non-profit, Table Tennis, sport, or social organisation with a project that uses Table Tennis to bring positive change in its local or regional environment.

The Dream Building Fund powered by GSD is looking to fund a total of approximately five projects that target at a specific UN SDG and exhibit a clear-defined Theory of Change.

Please note that the Dream Building Fund powered by GSD cannot support individuals directly.

Successful projects will receive the knowledge and financial support from the ITTF Foundation and our partner, The Foundation of Global Sports Development (GSD). A Video-Making on Mobile Phone workshop will potentially be a part of the programme to help project managers to widen the reach of their work.

Each project will last for two to three years and have a clear exit strategy defined at the end of its first year.


We look forward to receiving your applications! Apply HERE.
