Experts from Eurasia Social Change has compiled two guidelines to support CSOs working in the field of migration and the international protection. These guidelines have been produced within the Migration and Civil Society Project in Turkey.
The Mapping of Donors and Philanthropic Organizations
The aim of the Directory is to formulate a framework of how to map and analyse institutions, organisations and programmes that can provide funding to CSOs engaged in migration issues.
The Directory is assembled so as to make it easy for CSOs to navigate their way around the funding organisations and the funding for different objectives.
All kinds of CSOs need to reach potential donors to secure funding for their activities related to migration issues. Within this Directory, the team of authors conducted a mapping of donors and tried to define donors suitable for all sizes of CSOs. As the needs and objectives of larger CSOs and medium-to-small sized CSOs are different, the team tried to cover the diversity of needs thorough the mapping of possible funding opportunities at all levels.
Guideline for Innovative Funding Methods for CSOs
This Guide has been prepared as a source of information and inspiration. It is not a comprehensive handbook on fundraising but should be used as a guide for any NGO looking to strategically review resource opportunities and start planning new ways to fund their activities. The guide will be particularly useful for newer and smaller CSOs in Turkey working with immigrants or immigrants, but also interested in exploring more sustainable ways to fund their work in the field of migration. It will also come in handy for more mature NGOs and other stakeholders such as businesses and municipal authorities.
This Guideline for CSOs working in the field of migration and the international protection of migrants has been drafted as part of an EU co-financed project implemented by the DG for Migration Management, under the Ministry of the Interior. The project is entitled “Technical Assistance for Cooperation with Civil Society in the Field of Migration and International Protection”. This Guideline has been produced in response to a desire of CSOs to identify more diverse and more sustainable means for resourcing their missions and have been produced to complement another output of the project, which is the Donors’ Directory.
