As part of our strategic partnership with the European Commission under the EaSI programme, Euclid Network is launching a call for tender to update the EU Funding Toolkit.

The EU Funding Toolkit developed by Euclid Network is a unique resource which unwraps the funding programmes of the European Commission that are relevant for the social enterprise sector.

1. Objectives – activities – outputs

The general objective of this call for tender is to update the existing EU Funding Toolkit of Euclid Network. The update includes an additional chapter on the basics of international fundraising. The update also includes additional chapters on funding opportunities in Europe for social enterprise support organisations, beyond those of the European Commission. Examples of non-EU funding opportunities include grants from foundations.

Under the supervision of the Programme Manager, the successful candidate would be expected to:

  • Research relevant funding opportunities for social enterprise support organisations;
  • Provide a mapping of relevant funds;
  • Liaise with the Programme Manager on which funds will be described in the Toolkit;
  • Do in-depth interviews with the selected funds;
  • Draft the additional chapters.

The updated EU Funding Toolkit must contain clear and detailed information on the following:

  • A basic introduction into international fundraising in the social enterprise space;
  • At least 4 additional chapters on non-EU funding opportunities, following the logic of the existing toolkit;
  • Additional tips & tricks on accessing funding.
