Three public benefit foundations collaborate

for the support of 17 non-profit organisations

17 organisations will receive funding through the programme “Points of Support”, an initiative designed by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, TIMA Charitable Foundation and Hellenic Hope. The open call was published on June 2015 and 133 proposals were received. Main goal of the programme is the strengthening of independent nonprofit organisations for the further development and upgrade of the services they provide in vulnerable groups of Greece that face illness, abuse, hunger or deprivation as well as any kind of disability.

For the dispersion of funding to as many issue areas the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation will fund 8 organisations active in the field of social inclusion and integration as well as direct access to health services, the TIMA Charitable Foundation will fund 6 organisations that focus on providing services to elderly and Hellenic Hope will fund 3 organisations involved in the protection of children affected by the economic crisis. Through the program a total of € 85.000 will be allocated, aiming to become the seed to each organisation in order to implement small-scale projects that will multiply its effectiveness.

Dimitris Afendoulis, Secretary to the Executive Board of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation mentioned: “It is particularly important for three charitable foundations to co-design and co-finance a new program aiming to support worthwhile, established and newly-founded civil society organisations; so that they can relieve in innovative and useful ways our fellow citizens who experience in the cruelest way the current crisis. Through this program, we form a chain of solidarity in which we hope to continually add new links of offer and support.”

The 3 public benefit foundations will monitor the progress of the projects and the publication of the final results.
