General information about associations’ operational grant
Every year, Tamy’s Executive Board bestows operational grant to the subject associations, faculty associations and hobby associations operating under Tamy. The purpose of the operational grant is to support the association’s activities. Associations’ operational grant is not granted for smaller projects; for that purpose, associations can apply for Tamy’s project support.
In addition to Tamy’s association status, associations applying for operational grant must have at least ten members (excluding associations that do not have natural person members). Associations (registered or unregistered) must have a bank account in their name.
The Council of Representatives determines the sum appropriated for operational grant when it approves Tamy’s budget. In 2018, €28,788 is reserved for subject and faculty association operational grants and €10,485 for hobby association operational grants. If an association operating within Tamy does not apply for operational grant, it must leave an association announcement by the end of the application period for the operational grant. Find the forms on association’s operational grant website.
