The Green European Foundation, together with the Green Group in the European Parliament, is organising a special fundraising training for projects with a focus on migration.
In 2016, GEF and Greens-EFA collaborated on the ‘Guide to EU Funding on Migration and Asylum’, a publication available in 16 languages, which showcases EU funds available to local activists and organisations across Europe. In 2017, the need was identified to organise a training which allows organisations working on these topics to exchange best practices, at the same time with reinforcing their fundraising capacities.
Training in Athens
This training is targeting grassroots organisations all over Europe who are working on topics around migration, refugees or asylum seekers, and who oftentimes lack the capacities to obtain the necessary funding for their important work. With this opportunity we want to empower the participating organisations to apply for EU funds, namely the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF), or determine alternative funding possibilities and exchange their experiences and best practices. We will share practical experience on innovative fundraising techniques available to organisations with reduced means, such as crowdfunding, experiential fundraising, etc.
We also want to enable the participants to network and shape future project ideas together. Last but not least, we aim to enable exchange with policy-makers as well as with refugees and asylum seekers themselves.
Venue, timing and duration
The training will last 3 full days, starting on Thursday, 28 September 2017, in the afternoon and ending on Sunday, 1 October 2017, in the afternoon. The training will be organised in Athens, Greece.
Applications for participation in this event are closed. For more information, please contact the Project Coordinator, Carlotta.Weber@gef.eu.
