The project goal is to increase the level and effectiveness of private philanthropy in Southeast Europe. To this end, the Zing Foundation, also known as Bolder Giving, will provide support to key Mott grantees in Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, and Turkey and will strengthen their capacity to use donor storytelling as an effective strategy for increasing local giving. In addition, Bolder Giving will identify and profile diaspora donors from these four countries to inspire them to give back to causes in their countries of origin. Also, Bolder Giving will prepare a toolkit on storytelling strategies and techniques for its partners and other interested nonprofits. Bolder Giving will also experiment with donor education Webinars for donors and foundation leaders interested in strategic philanthropy in these four countries. Since its launch in 2007, Bolder Giving has been inspiring and supporting people to engage in philanthropic work at their full lifetime potential. During the past grant period, the grantee provided training and consultancy to key Mott grantees in Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, and Turkey and supported them to develop and publicize 35 inspirational donor stories from the four countries.
The project goal is to strengthen the infrastructure for philanthropy in Turkey. This grant increase will allow the grantee to respond to a new opportunity to assist in the development of a local grantmaking organization. This work will complement the project's core objectives by strengthening international and local philanthropy directed to rights-based nonprofits. Also, through this additional work, the grantee will increase its organizational and programmatic capacities to provide support services to Turkey's growing philanthropic sector. Based in Istanbul, the grantee was established in 1993 by Turkey's leading associations and foundations and today is a vital support network and resource center for its more than 100-member associations and foundations as well as the sector in general.
