In collaboration with crowdfunding platform Goteo, we recently launched a match funding call that offers 10,000 EUR to support projects using digital cultural content in secondary education.

Three innovative projects were selected and started their crowdfunding campaigns on Goteo.org. Their first round will run until 5 June. If the projects meet their minimum financial goal by then, we will promote a second and final crowdfunding round from 6 to 25 June.

In these campaigns, Europeana will match each Euro donated by you (up to a maximum of 100 EUR per individual donation), maximising the impact of each contribution. Each project campaign may receive up to 3.500 EUR from Europeana.
