Promotion of grassroots sport

Funding opportunities for popular and recreational sports in the state of Brandenburg for registered sports clubs

The promotion of sports is a significant contribution to the positive development of sport in the state of Brandenburg. The Constitution of the State of Brandenburg (Article 35) states: "Sport is a worthy part of life. The sports promotion of the state, the municipalities and municipal associations is aimed at a balanced and needs-based relationship between popular sport and top-class sport. It should take into account the special needs of pupils, students, seniors and people with disabilities". Further details are regulated in the Act on the Promotion of Sports in the State of Brandenburg.

In principle, grants for project funding may only be approved for projects that have not yet been started. As a rule, a project is started when contracts relating to the execution of the project have been concluded. Donations may only be granted to recipients for whom proper management appears to be ensured and who are able to prove the use of the funds as intended. This requires orderly accounting and sufficiently qualified personnel.

In the case of donations for construction measures and procurements, the recipient must also provide a financial guarantee for the proper use and maintenance of the corresponding buildings or objects. This special approval requirement is intended to support and ensure the sustainability of the funding project.
