ECG wins tender of the German Children and Youth Foundation for funding management in the program “ON! Live – the future is now”.

The ECG has won the tender of the German Children’s and Youth Foundation GmbH (DKJS) for the entire funding management within the program “UP! Live – Future is now”, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Family, Seniors, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ).

This program supports children and young people in coping with the consequences of the corona pandemic and regaining everyday structures. It is about learning and experiencing outside of the classroom: Young people should be supported and strengthened in their personal development and social learning and the bonds between children and young people should be promoted.

The focus of the program is the future fund, from which non-profit independent organizations and legal entities under public law can apply nationwide for funding for their projects. The future fund’s budget is around 80 million euros.


ECG will perform the following tasks:

  1. Development of IT based on Eureka5.0 as a web application for all those involved in funding management. The development must be completed within a very short time (4 weeks).
  2. Operation of the application according to BSI security regulations.
  3. The examination of funding applications, requests for funds, amendments and lists of uses.
  4. The fiduciary payment of the funds.
