The Technical Assistance for Civil Society Organisations (TACSO) is happy to share with you
Regional Directory of Donors providing financial support in the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance
(IPA) Countries, with 510 donors and calls for proposals available for Civil Society Organisations
(CSOs) in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia
The general objectives of the TACSO project is to strengthen the overall capacities and accountability
of CSOs within IPA beneficiaries and to guarantee the quality of services of CSOs and a
sustainable role of the CSOs in the democratic process.
The main purposes of the project are to:
• increase and improve the capacity and actions of CSOs; and
• improve the democratic role of CSOs.
The Project’s interventions aim to support beneficiaries to be able to undertake activities such as:
policy analysis and advocacy; monitoring of state performance and the effectiveness of the civil
sector; building social capital and enabling citizens to identify and articulate their values, beliefs,
civic norms and democratic practices; and mobilising various actors to participate more fully in
politics and public affairs.
In support of this, TACSO has been channelling numerous information to the CSOs in the region
in relation to their organisational development, relevant changes at the institutional level as well
as information related to CSOs’ sustainability.
With this in mind, TACSO developed a Regional Directory of Donors where CSOs coming from
the Western Balkans and Turkey will be able to find information related to possible sources of
The Directory aims to help civil society organisations identify and reach potential donors which
could help them in providing funds to implement their valuable activities. In particular, the Regional
Directory of Donors is intended to provide a comprehensive source of reference so civil
society organisations could obtain information on potential funding in areas of good governance,
sustainable development and poverty reduction, development services, rural development, policy
reforms, legislation, rule of law and good governance, community development, social protection,
gender equality and participation, environment, health, research, training and education.
