The European Commission (EC) is a significant source of funding for NGOs worldwide. Its regular calls for proposals and other grant opportunities offer a substantial amount of funding resources for NGOs. These calls and opportunities seek to support projects and programs in a wide range of fields: Poverty reduction; sustainable development; promoting democracy; human rights; and more.
Despite this, many NGOs avoid applying for funding because of the complexity and highly competitive nature of the EC grant system. The funding guidelines can be difficult to understand, instructions are complicated, and the application form can be difficult to follow. But this should not deter NGOs from trying. With some time and effort, it is possible to understand the grant system and apply for EC grants successfully.
This entry-level webinar will help NGOs identify and apply to calls for European Commission development programs and external actions.
