About this grant
The project goal is to enlarge and strengthen the membership base of the Russia Donors Forum in order to establish long-term sustainability of the organization. This grant will support its efforts to make membership development more strategic and systematic. At the same time, by providing more targeted services and engaging members more actively in the forum’s work, the project will seek to strengthen professional capacity within Russia’s philanthropic community. The Russia Donors Forum has successfully increased its membership and represented member interests since it was officially established in 2002, reflecting the growing importance of indigenous philanthropy in Russia. The grantee promotes the development of democratic civil society in Russia by enhancing the effectiveness of organized grantmaking through networking, information sharing, and collaborative initiatives among active grantmakers.
