Training on Financial Management and Funds Administration

ILGA-Europe announces a call for applications to the training on Financial Management and Funds Administration taking place on 28-29 April in Budapest, Hungary.

This training is organised within the framework of ILGA-Europe’s capacity building strategic objective. We have identified the need to provide organisations members with further financial management knowledge and skills necessary to effectively operate an NGO. We have also identified member organisation’s need to extend their practical skills on how to properly administer financial resources in accordance with donors’ requirements.

The training aims to equip the participants with sufficient knowledge on efficient financial management and its links with overall project implementation, fundraising and reporting with the view to help the participants develop and extend their skills on ensuring the organisations’ sustainability. During the training, different tools of financial management, procedures and their practical use will be explored linking them to overall goals and objectives of the organisations. Participants will also be encouraged to share their experiences. The training will be led by ILGA-Europe staff.

The training will bring together 20 total participants from ILGA-Europe member-organisations and other LGBTI organisations working in the European region. The participants are expected to actively follow-up on the training by applying the obtained knowledge and skills in their countries and instilling their knowledge to improve the internal functioning of their organisations.
