Grants

We want to be a force for good in society, which is why we support projects that contribute to the four United Nations Sustainable Development Goals we have chosen to focus on: Quality education, gender equality, industry, innovation, and infrastructure and climate action.


The Bank's Grant Committee assesses all grant applications. Any other grants are advertised separately:

Entrepreneurship Fund

We provide grants to entrepreneurs, to support the development of a diverse economy.

Charity

Íslandsbanki is the main supporter of the Reykjavík Marathon. We established Hlaupastyrk which is the largest charity collection website in the country, where nearly two hundred associations collect donations every year.

In recent years, over 400 of the Bank's employees have participated in the Helping Hand initiative, where each employee helps a charity for one day a year.

Applying for a grant

Íslandsbanki supports selected projects that reinforce and strengthen society and protect the environment by supporting people, NGOs and companies that promote positive societal development.

Some things to consider before applying for a grant:

  • The Bank does not cover domestic or international travel costs for associations, companies or individuals.
  • The Bank does not support political organisations, nor does it support any individual candidates, associations or individuals. 
  • Íslandsbanki helps charities by sponsoring the www.hlaupastyrkur.is website. Íslandsbanki's sponsorship committee encourages other charities in the country to ask runners to run for their cause in the Íslandsbanki Reykjavík Marathon and to seek sponsorship via the www.hlaupastyrkur.is website.
  • We want to be a force for good in society, which is why we support projects that contribute to the four United Nations Sustainable Development Goals we have chosen to focus on: Quality education, gender equality, industry, innovation, and infrastructure and climate action.
