Operating grant

AYY’s operating grant is intended to support the continuous activities of associations. All associations in AYY’s association register may apply for the operating grant in accordance with the following terms: an association must have an open membership policy and at least 60% but no less than ten of the association members entitled to vote are members of AYY, 

Applications are scored using the scoring model for operating grants. In 2022, the application period will start on Wed, 20 Apr 2022 at 12noon and end on Wed, 11 May 2022 at 11.59pm.

An application for the operating grant consists of a completed application form and the required appendices. In addition, you will also need to submit documents from the previous operating year (financial statements, annual report), documents from the current year, which guide operations (action plan, budget, list of current officials), and valid bylaws. The association must also have a username and password for the TAHLO system, and an up-to-date association profile on AYY’s website.

Further information is available from AYY’s  Association Sector.

The sums of grants from previous years can be found here.

Start-up grant

AYY can award start-up grants to new associations to cover the cost of registration on the following terms:

  • The association must apply to the first list of AYY’s association register.
  • The association may not be more than one year old when it submits its application to be included in AYY’s association register.
  • The association must be registered with the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH), or registration must be under way.

The total amount of the start-up grant is €185, and it is intended to cover PRH’s processing fee for the establishment notice and to start the activities of the association.

You can apply for the grant either in connection with an application to be included in AYY’s association register, or later once all the terms have been met. In the latter case, you can apply for the grant by contacting AYY’s Association Sector.
