About the Portal
The Information Portal of Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs) in Bulgaria is designed and launched with the support of the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe. It is a joint initiative of the Bulgarian Center for Not-for-Profit Law and Programme and Analytical Centre for European Law.
The Portal aims at becoming the primary and most accurate source of information about Bulgarian NGOs. Its database contains the most up-to-date data about the non-profit sector in Bulgaria. Every registered organization can edit its profile and use the services of the portal – creating its own webpage, publishing materials on the library section and accessing all library resources, placing announcements for job vacancies, accessing the database of potential volunteers, posting press releases, news, events on the Calendar section and on the notice board.
The database with information about active NGOs is the core of the portal. The data has been collected from various sources - conferences of NGOs, donors’ programmes, the Central Registry of NGOs in public benefit, and many more. The initial information was gathered with the assistance of local coordinators in each of the 28 administrative regions of Bulgaria. It was then verified and complemented. All organizations which were impossible to be contacted were removed from the list. The database does not include sports clubs and community centres ("Chitalishta").
