The European Commission’s regular call for proposals and various other funding resources provide several opportunities for NGOs to seek grants to address a range of issues in different countries. It has been considered as one of the largest sources of funding organizations for NGOs.
Despite committing a vast number of financial resources for supporting civil society organizations, many NGOs are unable to apply successfully for funding from the European Commission. This could be because your organization may not be aware about how to identify funding opportunities from its website; how to register for its PADOR database so that your NGO is eligible to apply for any relevant grant that emerges in its call for proposals listing; or you get confused with its complicated application process. All these factors deter several organizations from applying to various calls from the European Commission though it is the largest and highly potential source of funding for your NGO.
So how can your organization understand how the European Commission works and how you can benefit from its regular funding instruments specifically for NGOs?
