Europe Foundation - Open Door Grantmaking Program

Europe Foundation (EPF) is pleased to invite Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), registered and operating in Georgia, to participate in its Open Door Grantmaking Program. EPF encourages interested CSOs to submit inquiries or full proposals. CSOs will still be able to submit inquiries within Open Door Grantmaking Program after the abovementioned deadline. During the review of applications, EPF will put a significant emphasis on assessing whether the proposed projects include an adequate analysis of gender and minority considerations that relate to direct or indirect effect of the project activities and expected results on men and women, as well as different minority groups. 

EPF’s mission is to empower people to effect change for social justice and economic prosperity through hands-on programs, helping them to improve their communities and their own lives. EPF engages citizens in social, economic, and political developments, in order to effect substantive and sustainable positive socio-economic change at the local, regional, and national level through both operational programs and grantmaking.

EPF’s work is guided by the following mandates and approaches: citizen monitoring, corporate and community philanthropy, evidence-based advocacy and policy making, cross-border/cross-community cooperation, cross-cutting gender policy, youth integration, public-private partnerships, and open door grantmaking. Some of EPF’s flagship programs include Engage and Monitor for Change, Youth Integration, European Integration, Social Enterprise, and Open Door Grantmaking. Together, they feed into achieving the Foundation’s mission and provide opportunities for Georgians to engage in social, economic, and political developments, in order to effect positive change at the local and national level.

Europe Foundation was established as a local organization in 2008. EPF is a member of the Eurasia Foundation (EF) Network: eleven local foundations supporting civil society that are based in Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus, Russia, Central Asia, and Washington, DC.   

The analysis of projects funded by EPF in previous years showed that the majority of project budgets varied from GEL 40, 000 to GEL 45, 000, a range that enabled grantees to successfully achieve project goals and objectives. Therefore, EPF recommends applicants to take into account this condition when preparing project proposals. Grant funds may be used only for the activities directly related to implementation of a grant project.

Grant funds cannot be used for covering organization’s on-going expenses, construction expenses, purchase of real estate, or covering the applicant organization’s debt.
