"The Creativity Pioneers Fund was launched in 2021 by Moleskine Foundation to provide flexible funding in the amount of € 5,000 to creative and cultural organizations to help sustain their essential functions and programs. Today, the Creativity Pioneers Fund represents a coalition of partners who believe in the transforming power of creativity and the need to use a new philanthropic approach to social change. Leveraging the creative ecosystem of partners and stakeholders, the Creativity Pioneers Fund aims to offer various learning and development opportunities for its participants/recipients."
"The Creativity Pioneers Fund intends to invest in bold, inspiring and intersectional organizations close to the challenges and communities they seek to address. Through the Creativity Pioneers Fund, we are promoting a more progressive philanthropic approach based on trust, unrestricted funding, valorization of intersectionality, simple and inclusive paperwork both at the selection process and M&E, and a strong focus on building long-lasting networks and ecosystems."
