On January 11, the webinar “Grant Management to Support the Capacity of Civil Society Organizations” was held.

More than 100 participants joined the webinar. A significant number of participants also watched the broadcast online.

The webinar once again confirmed that a strong civil society had been formed in Ukraine, which, despite difficult conditions, maintaining its constancy, stability, and strength, is ready to respond to new challenges, work for Ukraine’s victory in this war and defend its right to be democratic, European successful country.

We thank the author and presenter Ivan Kulchytskyy for interesting and important information about sources of financing activities for CSOs, stages of CSO capacity building, tips on how to work with a grant application, and for sharing his own experience about many other important aspects which are necessary to consider when writing grant applications.

We would like to thank the Agency of European innovations / Агенція європейських інновацій for the help in organizing and holding the event.

We thank the participants for participating in the discussions and for their active position.
