About this grant

This grant increase will provide additional funds to support the organizational and programmatic development of the Foundation for Democratic Initiatives, an emerging, indigenous grantmaking organization in Kosovo. The foundation’s mission is to increase public participation in decisionmaking; stimulate cross-sector cooperation; and improve the effectiveness, transparency and accountability of Kosovo’s public institutions by providing grants to local non-governmental organizations and community-based civic groups. The foundation works throughout Kosovo and is based in the town of Gjakova.
