About this grant
The program goal is to stimulate community-based civic engagement and resource mobilization in Bosnia and Herzegovina. During 2018–2020, the Tuzla Community Foundation will play a convening and capacity building role in the community; support community initiatives and projects through grants; strengthen philanthropy locally through fund development and outreach to the community; and develop its board and staff capacities for sustainability, leadership, and management. During the previous grant period, the grantee awarded 199 grants totaling approximately $240,000 through programs targeting community-based citizen engagement, community school development, environmental issues, and youth poverty. The projects directly benefited 5,633 Tuzla residents.
