38 projects have been selected to receive grants under the sixth round of the “Points of Support” programme for 2023-2024.
Taking part in the sixth round of the programme, which began in 2015 and has funded 119 projects with more than 66,000 beneficiaries, are the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, the TIMA Charitable, Foundation, the Bodossaki Foundation, the Captain Vassilis and Carmen Constantakopoulos Foundation, the A. G. Leventis Foundation, the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation, the Costas M. Lemos Foundation, the Social and Cultural Affairs Welfare Foundation (KIKPE), The Hellenic Initiative Canada and the Athina I. Martinou Foundation. The current round of the programme is coordinated by the Bodossaki Foundation.
The aims of the programme are, on the one hand, provision of support for small-scale original projects with the highest possible social impact and, on the other hand, reinforcement and capacity building for Greek civil society organizations, with priority given to those of small and medium size, as a means of bolstering the development and effectiveness of their work.
The 38 projects that have been selected* out of a total of 150 applications will be granted an amount of up to €5,000 each. The projects will be implemented by 50 Civil Society organizations, 12 of which will participate in the projects as partner organizations, over a period of six months. In addition to the funding, the selected organizations will also take part in free capacity building activities, which will be designed, funded and implemented by Social Dynamo, the NGO hub of the Bodossaki Foundation.
