Consulting portal MTÜ abi, a roadmap for CSOs, helps to find quick answers to your questions regarding the establishment of an CSO and guides you through the complex world of funding opportunities.

Use the left-hand menu to navigate the webpage. The menu has been based on an organisation’s life cycle – from the activities preceding its establishment to ending its activity. On the right-hand side, you will find the calendar of terms and events (in Estonian language) and a news/notifications section, where we occasionally publish information of state-wide interest.

If you do not find an answer to your question, feel free to use the Need help? button to send your question without leaving your computer or look up our English-speaking consultants and directly contact any one of them.

The portal is meant for all CSOs, the people who run them, and all those interested in the civil society. Apartment associations are counselled and serviced by the Estonian Union of Co-operative Housing Associations.
