Consulting and advisory services

Consulting and advisory services

We provide advice and guidance for various issues related to association activities and civic engagement. The duration and nature of the service varies based on the customer’s needs, ranging from answering individual questions to consulting associations in longer development projects. Common topics we advise on include founding an association, accounting, applying for funding, fundraising, and project management.

The consulting and advisory services are primarily intended for multicultural and ethnic minorities’ associations and associations started by immigrants. The services are free of charge.

You can request advice directly from our experts, whose contact information is listed below. You can also find answers to several frequently asked questions in our association resource library.
