To mark the occasion of our 400th anniversary, Grolsch has created
the Grolsch Craftsmanship is Mastery Fund. The purpose of the fund
is to promote 'craftsmanship' in the broadest sense of the word in
the regions of Twente and the Achterhoek, where the brewery was
born. With this fund, Grolsch hopes to emphasise its regional
roots. Each year, the fund will finance initiatives to promote
economic growth and social cohesiveness in the region. Grolsch
places a high value on character and entrepreneurship on the one
hand, and innovation and sustainability on the other.
Criteria: from innovative to
In principle, anyone can apply for a Grolsch
Craftsmanship is Mastery Fund grant, as long as the project and/or
initiative takes place within the region and focuses on
craftsmanship. All initiatives will be evaluated by a professional
jury based on four criteria: entrepreneurship, innovation,
sustainability and character.
At the start of each year, the Grolsch Craftsmanship is
Mastery Fund jury will evaluate all of the applications that have
been received. Since this year is a special anniversary, and the
Fund has only recently been founded, applications will be accepted
until the end of June. During a special evening in October, the
jury will then announce which projects and/or initiatives will
receive a grant from the fund. Click here for the application form.
