About this grant

The program goal is to promote public participation in decisionmaking and community development through targeted grantmaking and support to community-based action. Mozaik Community Development Foundation 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. This grant increase will support general operating costs and the further development of the foundation’s two social enterprises, which will begin operations in late 2010. The foundation is based in Sarajevo, works throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina, and is networked with other grantmaking institutions in Eastern Europe.
