The program goal is to strengthen the capacity of local civic groups to promote positive change in their communities. The Civil Action Foundation will take over responsibility for delivery of support services for regional civic organizations from its partner, the Perm Civic Chamber. Services will focus on promoting innovative citizen activism strategies across a range of civic issues with growing public resonance. These services will also seek to promote essential organizational management practices within client organizations. In 2011–2013, the grantee and its partners provided consulting support to groups working on issues as diverse as effective condominium management to medical provision for diabetes sufferers to public oversight of government agencies. They also gathered and actively disseminated information on over 120 successful cases of citizen activism from across Russia. Founded in 2005, the Civil Action Foundation’s mission is to provide informational, organizational, legal, and technical support to civil initiatives in the Perm region and throughout Russia.
The program goal is to encourage the economic and social development of rural communities in central Croatia. To this end, during the grant period the Regional Foundation for Local Development Zamah will provide grants, organize training, raise public awareness about civic responsibility, facilitate cross-sectoral cooperation, encourage social entrepreneurship, and promote philanthropy. In 2012–2013, the grantee supported a wide range of community projects with direct grant support totaling more than $260,000 and by helping to secure local financial and in-kind donations. Direct grantmaking was complemented by trainings and technical assistance to recipients. The grantee also worked with local businesses and local government officials to encourage transparent and effective funding mechanisms for civic initiatives. Through various events and activities, including an annual Women’s Philanthropy Award and workshops in primary schools, the grantee stimulated and promoted philanthropy. In 2014–2015, the grantee will continue to support participatory community development initiatives with grants and will diversify funding for this work by raising funds from individuals, businesses, and local governments. The grantee will strengthen its organizational capacities by increasing the number of staff. The grantee was established in 2006 and is based in Zagreb.
