The European Commission is one of the largest donor agencies providing funding to NGOs!
Their Call for Proposals are a regular funding resource where NGOs can explore grant opportunities to support their work
Responding to their grant opportunities can be very challenging because each opportunity seeks a proposal or a concept note.
So how does an organization write a concept note for seeking funding from the European Commission
We have over 90 minutes of training video for NGOs to understand how to accurately read and interpret the call for proposals guidelines; understand the criteria on which basis the European Commission will assess your proposal and how you can best respond to them; Understand how to adapt your own project to the guidelines of the call for proposals; get new hints on how to draft an attractive and highly competitive concept note following the EC format; and obtain answers to the questions you always wanted to know.
This video is ideally suited to fundraisers who want to build their fundraising capacity, executive directors/NGO managers who are responsible for donor relations, and, individuals who want to develop their professional skills and effectiveness.
In addition to accessing the video, you will also be able to download resource material including the slideshow and resource material related to this video.
