News EU Funding Guides for NGOs

ECAS is a large cross-sectoral European NGO whose mission is to enable other NGOs and individuals to make their voice heard within the EU by providing advice on how to lobby, fundraise, and defend European citizenship rights.  With over 17 years experience in Brussels, our multilingual and expert staff are well equipped to assist other NGO?s in gaining access to funding.

It is on this basis that we produce two funding guides on how to access funding from the world's largest donor; the EU institutions and associations. There are two volumes;
1)                  2007 Guide to European Union Funding, Volume 1 - Funding within the EU
2)                  2007 Guide to European Union Funding, Volume 2 - Funding outside of the EU

There is a budget for practically any project which has a genuine European dimension; the issue of attaining funding is more about having a good strategy to accessing the EU budget. Therefore our guides run through step by step on how to gain funding from the EU institutions for programmes in every policy area. It also gives advice on how to get through the rigid and bureaucratic systems, practical information on the time that you will need to invest, and the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.

Being written upon a library of resources and personal contacts it brings together information that is scattered and difficult to find without years of experience. The guides have been designed to be easy to read and understand with as little 'EU jargon terms' used as possible, making it accessible for those who know little about funding from the EU.

Click here to see the table of contents of the guides, and an order form (scroll to bottom of the page). The guides are priced at 30 Euros for Vol-1, and 25 Euro for Vol-2, or 50 Euros for both. This is priced very competively in comparison to other guides on the market.
