Bridge for CSOs is a three-year Civil Society Strengthening Programme funded by the European Union and implemented by Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) in partnership with Eurasia Partnership Foundation. It aims to strengthen and build the capacity of Armenian civil society organizations (CSO) to effectively contribute to decision making processes in Armenia. A unique component of the programme is engagement of Diaspora talent and expertize. Local CSOs will have the opportunity to benefit from capacity building trainings, receive professional support from Diaspora experts, participate in CSO Management Certificate Program at a local university, apply for small grants, engage prominent individuals as Champions and Good Will Ambassador. This call is about financial support to third parties (grants) through the Programme. Bridge for CSOs will issue four types of grants, each with different objective, target audience, timeline and funding size.
