ECI webinar How to Budget your ECI

2nd Citizens' Panel in Lisbon

REGISTER NOW : 11 October 2023 at 14:30 CEST

Human resources and staff, communications activities, events… running an ECI could come with high costs. But how much is really needed to run an ECI campaign? What parts of a yearlong, transnational, multilingual campaign require more funds?

How have past successful ECIs allocated their funds and balanced their budget?

Join a 60-minute workshop as part of the ECI Forum designed to answer these questions and to provide a comprehensive understanding of the financial structures and reports of past successful ECIs. The workshop will look at budget breakdowns and how to effectively allocate funds.

BONUS: We will also cover the essential requirements for reporting donations exceeding 500 EUR, ensuring that you are well-prepared to budget your ECI.

Speakers include:

  • Katharina Loupal, Stop Finning ECI
  • Olga Kikou, End the Cage Age ECI
  • Andre Menache, Stop Vivisection ECI
  • Savannah Schuurbiers, European Citizens Action Service, on how to report funds

If you are a current or potential European citizens’ initiative organizer and would like to gather budgeting advice, or if you’re simply interested in breaking down an ECI budget, register below.
