About this grant

The program goal is to improve the capacity for strategic grantmaking that supports the participation of women in decisionmaking processes at local and national levels in Serbia. To this end, the grant supports the institutional and programmatic development of the Reconstruction Women’s Fund, a Serbian grantmaking organization. During the grant period, Mott support will allow the grantee to increase networking with other women’s initiatives in Serbia and internationally, engage in participatory strategy development, and broaden local fundraising efforts. During the past two years, the fund increased financial and in-kind donations from local sources, raised awareness of the fund by increasing collaboration with women’s initiatives in Serbia and regional networks, and strengthened links with Roma women activists and other women’s groups in Serbia. The fund is based in Belgrade, Serbia, and works throughout Serbia.
