Making dreams come true - investing in problem solvers

What is the Dream Building Fund?

The TT Dream Building Fund is an annual call for projects aiming to support projects which solve problems within their communities. The ITTF Foundation is looking for change makers, who wish to use table tennis as as a tool to improve an aspect of human welfare in their local reality. The expected impact results for the beneficiaries of these projects are therefore, not based on Table Tennis performance but rather its contribution towards one of the 17 global goals.

Are you the next Dream Building Fund successful candidate? Here is what you need:

  1. A clear understanding of the problem you wish to solve in your local community - linked to one the world´s 17 most pressing problems
  2. A solution that uses table tennis as a tool to transform this problem
  3. Have or go through a registered organisation overseeing the project
  4. Share your dream with us: Fill out the application form and accompanying document by the deadline

All it takes to apply: a dream and the motivation to take the first step and apply!

We will share more details about the application process mid-year 2021, as we call for projects starting 2022.

Our Approach

The Dream Building Fund is based on:

  • The idea of partnership where every stakeholder contributes to the success of the project.
  • Theory of Change (ToC) a methodology used for planning, participation and evaluation to promote social change.

The project plan is therefore built together with successful candidates based on the following model:
