About this grant

The program goal is the development of community foundations in Russia. Through this program, Charities Aid Foundation will continue to provide technical assistance and networking opportunities to existing and emerging community foundations in Russia. The grantee will also launch a matching grant program to stimulate local giving for Russian community foundations’ institutional development and operating expenses. A grant increase will allow the grantee to improve the knowledge base of Russian community foundations and other philanthropic entities on creating more private and family foundations; increasing middle class giving by developing client giving programs directed to customers in the service and trade sectors; and encouraging giving by bequests.
