The program goal is to stimulate greater public participation in decision making and community building in five counties in eastern Croatia. To this end, during the grant period, the Community Foundation Slagalica will provide grants, organize training, raise public awareness about civic responsibility, and promote local philanthropy. The Community Foundation Slagalica will attract individual and corporate donors and design grantmaking programs that target youth and marginalized groups in local communities. Since its establishment in 2008, the Community Foundation Slagalica has awarded more than 200 grants totaling approximately $535,000 across 90 local communities in eastern Croatia. During 2013–2014, the grantee developed and expanded approaches to strengthening local philanthropy, including managing donor-advised funds, increasing membership in its “Philanthropists’ Club,” educating students about philanthropy and promoting philanthropy in schools, and soliciting donations from the public. The foundation is based in Osijek and works in five counties in eastern Croatia.
