FZO affiliates receive tailored advice and support. Our staff in Ghent and Brussels answers your questions about subsidies, regulation on associations and non-profit organisations (better known as “VZWs”), statutes and the like. Moreover, the federation organises trainings on how to insure volunteers (obligatory for several activities), book-keeping for vzw's, etc. We may equally facilitate your search for suitable locations and assist with the promotion of your activities.
We don't interfere in the proceedings of member organisations. Neither do we meddle with the objectives and activities of our affiliates as this would go against our fundamental values. We only require affiliates to subscribe to our basic values, and to submit a brief annual overview of activities.
FZO membership is free (NB membership is restricted to organisations). FZO members are invited regularly (at least once a year) to have a say in the activities and management of FZO.
