About this grant

The program goal is to strengthen the capacity of local civic groups to promote positive change in their communities. The Civil Action Foundation will provide support services for regional civic organizations. Services will focus on promoting innovative citizen activism strategies across a range of civic issues with growing public resonance. These services will also seek to promote essential organizational management practices within client organizations. In 2011-2013, the grantee and its partners provided consulting support to groups working on issues as diverse as effective condominium management to medical provision for diabetes sufferers to public oversight of government agencies. They also gathered and actively disseminated information on over 120 successful cases of citizen activism from across Russia. Founded in 2005, the Civil Action Foundation’s mission is to provide informational, organizational, legal, and technical support to civil initiatives in the Perm region and throughout Russia.
