ATHENS – HIGGS (Higher Incubator Giving Growth and Sustainability), an innovative non-profit organization was founded in 2015 with a founding donation from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to build capacity, support, and empower non-profits in Greece. HIGGS is helping the heroes who are helping those in need, maximizing the impact of non-profits in Greece, and making the world a better place.
Whether the non-profits are making their first steps or whether they have been operating for decades, from Medecins Sans Frontieres, Greenpeace, and the “Together for Children” Association to Ithaca Laundry, Reading to Others, and Positive Voice, from Crete to Kastoria and from Chios to Patra, HIGGS is there for them in the areas of health, education, human rights, the elderly, culture, technology, environment social welfare and many more.
In only a few years, HIGGS has supported more than 130 non-profits across Greece; the heroes who support 150,000 beneficiaries, who have created more than 90 new jobs and have attracted funding exceeding 3 million €. The organizations coming to HIGGS increase their social impact and this affects the lives of thousands of people.
