The congress is being held on 15th December, and is organized by the European Youth Capitol Novi Sad (Omladinska prestonica Evrope Novi Sad 2019 - OPENS 2019), in partnership with the Serbian Youth Umbrella Organization (KOMS)  and Color Press Group, together with the Ministry of youth and sports and the Department of Cooperation with the Civil Sector of the Government of the Republic of Serbia. The event will bring together socially responsible companies, foundations, embassies, nonprofits as well as representatives of public institutions.

What’s the idea?

Participants will be given an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences related to fundraising, network and learn about practical strategies through the examples of companies like ERSTE bank, Univerexport, NIS or Color Press Group. They will also hear more about support programs which organizations like UNICEF, UNDP or Tempus Foundation provide.

The congress is also an excellent opportunity for members of nonprofits to introduce their organizations to representatives of big companies, and talk to them directly about fundraising strategies and the possibility of cooperation.

One building will be an interactive field where you can pick which skills you would like to learn, applying for one or more info sessions, in various topics. In this part Catlyst Balkans will also present its tools at the session entitled Technology for better Fundraising. The complete agenda can be found here.
