INGO-Service was set up to receive voluntary financial contributions from INGOs. As stated its revised statutes adopted at its Extraordinary General Assembly on 24 June 2015: "The purpose of the association shall be to support the Conference of INGOs holding participatory status with the Council of Europe and its structures within the Council of Europe, particularly as regards external relations, by raising and making available the necessary resources".
What is its purpose?
The purpose of INGO-Service is to provide financial means to the Conference of INGOs, in addition to the financial contribution of the Council of Europe, to carry out its activities and its missions, to enhance the work of all of the INGOs holding participatory status.
