About The Booking Cares Fund

The Booking Cares Fund champions sustainable tourism changemakers in their search for new and unexpected solutions that reimagine the tourism and travel space. With the Fund we support projects that strengthen local communities, preserve & promote local culture, help disperse tourism and protect natural resources.

Changemakers can come from all over the world, representing universities, non-profits, research institutes and governments. Pioneers with bold, ambitious ideas to truly transform the sustainable tourism industry can apply for grants between €100k and €250k.
