In these challenging times, NGO managers and fundraisers are under more pressure than ever to diversify their funding sources. While sources of funding are numerous, identifying viable prospects, and navigating the complexities of applying can be extremely challenging.  As a consequence numerous sources are overlooked and NGOs get often discouraged by the complexity of donors’ systems ending up with not even applying for those funds.

While managers of NGOs may accurately realize the importance of fundraising, without thorough knowledge of the donors’ landscape they waste valuable time and money figuring out how the system works. Increased understanding of these different avenues however, can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of fundraising campaigns.

In this context, fundsforngos.org in collaboration with inProgress with Philantropia, Inc. is organizing the online seminar (also known as webinar) on “European Commission Funding” to inform managers and fundraisers on types of funding available through the European Commission.


After the course participants will:

  • Be able to better understand how the European Commission operates
  • Understand European Commission’s priorities in the developing and external relations field
  • Know what information is relevant and where to find it
  • Have the knowledge to make informed decisions on whether the European Commission is relevant to your organization or not
  • Understand whether you can apply for funds from the European Commission and if so, how to do it
