Classes are held internally and remotely.

For employees of non-profit organizations (NPOs) in Moscow, master classes and webinars will be held on preparing projects for the Moscow Mayor’s grant competition. Classes will be held as part of the educational program “NCO Lab”.

Any socially oriented NGO that plans to take part in the competition can join the events. You can register for classes and find out the schedule Online

At webinars and master classes, listeners will learn how to turn an idea into a full-fledged project and what needs to be taken into account in order for it to develop and be useful. Experts will also tell you how to substantiate the relevance of the project and correctly formulate its goals and objectives, make an estimate, correctly calculate the budget and report on financial results, find like-minded people to implement the initiative and prepare letters of support from partners.

Organizations that plan to take part in the competition will also be able to take an express course on all stages of preparing an application. Registration for the course will open after the start of accepting applications for participation in the competition.

At the same time, the participants will begin to provide comprehensive support: they will receive consultations through the call center on the formalization of documents, reminders about the stages of the competition. In May 2021, participants in the competition will also be able to receive individual detailed consultations from specialists on the issues of completing a specific application.

183 non-profit organizations will receive grants from the Mayor of Moscow

Every year Moscow hosts a competition for grants of the Mayor of Moscow for socially oriented non-profit organizations. Over the past five years, more than a thousand of these NGOs have received grants for the implementation of their initiatives. In 2020, the format of the competition has been updated. Now, NGOs that have been operating for six months or more can also take part in the competition, and for organizations that have been working for a year or more, the amount of the grant has grown to five million rubles (previously, the maximum amount was 2.5 million rubles). In addition, the procedure for submitting an application for participation in the competition has been simplified: now it is enough to submit only three documents in electronic form – the charter, the application and the letter of guarantee. Thanks to changes last year, twice as many NGOs joined the competition than the year before. In 2020, 575 non-profit organizations took part in the preparation for the competition, 183 NGOs became winners, 125 of them received the city’s support for the first time.
