About this grant
The European Programme for Integration and Migration is a donor collaborative hosted by the Network of European Foundations for Innovative Cooperation. Established in 2005, this program strengthens the role played by civil society organizations in advocating for constructive approaches to migration in Europe. This is done through grantmaking; capacity development; and networking activities addressing a range of issues, including asylum seekers; undocumented migrants; and the equality, integration, and social inclusion of vulnerable migrants. Between 2005 and 2015, this program has involved 20 European foundations in collaborative programming and grantmaking; leveraged funding from these foundations; awarded 55 grants to projects led by civil society organizations; and organized more than 20 pan-European exchange, training, and networking events involving grantees and funders. This grant increase will support a new subfund aimed at building inclusive European societies. Based in Brussels, the Network of European Foundations for Innovative Cooperation strengthens cooperation among foundations in Europe.
