The European Youth Foundation (EYF) is a fund established in 1972 by the Council of Europe to provide financial and educational support for European youth activities. An annual work plan set of successive activities over a period of one year, interconnected and which contribute to the same broader aim. Within the strategic approach or global action plan of an organisation (what the organisation would like to achieve in the year(s) to come), you are asked to identify a coherent set of activities/elements to be submitted to the EYF. It should be in line with what you do and want to achieve, but it should also be in line with the work, priorities and principles of the youth sector of the Council of Europe. A work plan cannot be a set of very small activities or material production only. A work plan needs to have a “European dimension” and this means it should still contain international activities (at least one).
Each activity/element should contribute to the aim of the work plan and the accomplishments of the work plan as a whole should contribute to the global purpose of the organisation. The work plan does not need to reflect the whole strategy of the NGO; it can be one element of it only. The different activities of a work plan have to contribute to achieve the objective of the work plan as a whole and have to be interconnected. It is useful to look at the “flow” of the various actions chronologically: individual activities are linked to each other, feed off and feed into each other (content-wise, through the participants and/or multipliers, towards one common result). Material production or preparatory meetings should not be included as separate activities. They should be included in the activities they are contributing to.
Eligible are: (1) international youth NGOs and (2) international networks of youth NGOs.
Actions must take place in Europe.
The maximum grant allocated is €50,000. The grant awarded for an annual work plan is paid in three instalments: 40% when the signed contract is sent to the EYF by post and the conditions in the contract (if any) are met. The other two payments of 30% each are linked to the receipt of a satisfactory interim and final report.
The application process is done online. The EYF guidelines and forms, should be used for guidance before submitting the application online. Deadlines are always 1 April and 1 October.
