Our Project

In response to both the economic and refugee crisis, Greek non-profit organizations (NPOs) have been called upon to address the most urgent needs of our society: poverty, health, social exclusion, unemployment. Additionally, they play a significant role in raising awareness on environmental protection and in working on animal welfare. State funding to NPOs has been reduced threatening their existence and social impact leading them to search for alternative sources of funding. However, a lot of organizations lack skills and knowledge in strategic planning and financial management making it difficult for them to seek and secure funding.

In this framework, now, more than ever, they need our support in order to operate effectively and support the most vulnerable.

We, at HIGGS, have as a mandate to help those who help!

HIGGS supports non-profit organizations operating in Greece to acquire all the necessary skills, tools and knowledge in improving their operations and designing successful funding applications through state-of-the-art tailor-made educational programs and counseling provided by our highly experienced team free of charge!

The project aims specifically at empowering 14 Non-Profit Organizations through the Incubator and Accelerator program by providing tailor-made support!

The “ Accelerator ” is a program, which lasts for 6 months, designed for small and medium-sized NPOs that require support in developing their business plan, project proposals for funding as well as in implementing projects.

The “ Incubator ” is a program, which lasts for 12 to 24 months, directed to newly established NPOs or to groups of people that have an idea for setting up a new NPO. It provides them with capacity-building support and guidance related to organizational, financial and operational issues.

Don’t forget to read our story (don’t miss our manifesto too), learn about our  vision and “meet” our fantastic team that has made HIGGS a reality.
