Welcome to the websites of Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF), a recognized leader in the field of grants management and program administration in the South Caucasus. EPF is comprised of three locally registered offices in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia, each with nearly 13 years of experience in the field of grassroots civil society development.
EPF is linked into the expertise and resources of the broader EF Network – sharing programming, ideas, systems and lessons that enrich all activities in the South Caucasus.
EPF’s Mission Statement:
To empower people to effect change for social justice and economic prosperity through hands-on programs, helping them to improve their communities and their own lives.
EPF’s Engage and Monitor for Change program fosters the active and informed participation of Georgian community groups, CSOs and media outlets in the political and economic decision-making in their regions by building capacity among civic groups, encouraging monitoring and evaluation of policy reforms and facilitating public discussions, debates and network building.
The program is aiming at contributing to the process of Georgia’s integration into the European Union (EU) and wider participation of civil society in the process of alignment with European institutions through monitoring of the integration process, advocacy for reforms, and public awareness campaign.
The Youth Bank program helpს young people aged 16 and 21 to develop skills and resources to enhance their social and community functioning and increase opportunities for volunteerism and civic activism.
The Program promotes the development of social enterprises, as viable business model that operate primarily with social objectives as the ‘bottom line’ and which reinvests profits back into the social objectives of the business.
Open Door Grantmaking Program provides CSOs with one of the very few opportunities to be proactive in identifying and addressing local needs, developing fresh solutions and ideas to existing challenges.
The project aims to contribute to improved budget transparency and accountability.
EPF seeks to engage a communications consultant/s to review EPF’s communications tools and assist the Foundation in formulating its new communications strategy. The objective of this assignment is to develop a comprehensive and coherent communications strategy for the period of 2015-2019 that will make EPF’s external communications more strategic, targeted and, thus, effective for its (1) collaboration with the general public, the media, government agencies, civil society and the private sector and (2) fundraising efforts vis-a-vis international and bilateral donors, and private corporations.
