About this grant

The program goal of Mozaik Community Development Foundation is to promote public participation in decisionmaking and community development through targeted grantmaking and support to community-based action. The grantee is a national-level, Bosnian foundation established in 2000. In 2009-2010, the foundation will use grantmaking, research, capacity building, and advocacy to improve the conditions for local-level social cohesion across Bosnia-Herzegovina. Particular emphasis will be given to stimulating corporate social responsibility and mobilizing local human and financial resources to meet community needs. In 2007-2008, the foundation supported 175 community initiatives with small grants totaling approximately €350,000, and these initiatives leveraged over €250,000 locally. The foundation also supported community facilitation activities and technical assistance in connection with its grantmaking and organized a regional conference on resource mobilization. The foundation is based in Sarajevo, works throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina, and is networked with other grantmaking institutions in Eastern Europe.
