About this grant

Despite being part of the global economic system and having fully functioning market economies, businesses in Central/Eastern Europe need to expand their role in social development by working with public and nonprofit sectors to promote social change. To encourage this collaboration, several donors’ associations in Central/Eastern Europe came together in 2004 and formed CEENERGI – Central and Eastern European Network for Responsible Giving – to be coordinated by the Czech Donors Forum.Multiyear funding will enable CEENERGI to develop country-specific strategies for increasing the level and effectiveness of corporate giving and carry out regional-level activities to encourage learning, mutual support and joint action among network participants. The Czech Donors Forum, an association of foundations established in 1997, supports the development of civil society by promoting philanthropy and encouraging donor agencies to work together to effectively utilize available resources.
