Our Mission

The Athens Partnership (AP) is a nonprofit organization that leverages government resources and secures cross-sector support for public priorities in Athens.

During a crucial time of need in our city, the Athens Partnership is helping us to move forward, spark innovation, and rethink the delivery of services.
— Georgios Kaminis, Mayor of Athens (2011-2019)

Our start

The launch of AP was championed by the Mayor of Athens in 2015, with a founding grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The organization was designed to develop projects with local government and a network of partners to effectively target needs, identify gaps and maximize resources.

how we work

Facilitating cross-sector collaboration is the core of our work. By leveraging both public and private resources, AP works to pilot programs and support successful efforts. Once funding is secured, AP works with municipal agencies as well as community partners.
