About this grant

This grant will provide internships for managers of Eastern European community foundations to help them become familiar with relevant practices of community foundations in the United Kingdom. The Capital Community Foundation (CCF) will select up to 20 Russian and Ukrainian community foundation managers, with little or no international experience, for internships. The nine-day internship program will include visits to several British community foundations in and around London, as well as in-depth presentations and discussion sessions on community foundation management, governance, fund development, grantmaking processes and other relevant topics. After 2006, CCF will extend the program to community foundation managers in other Eastern European countries.
