About this grant

The project goal is to establish the Hungarian Donors Forum as a full-fledged association of indigenous grantmakers. The mission of the forum is to promote philanthropy, support civil society, and improve the effectiveness and impact of indigenous grantmakers. During the grant period, the forum will expand its membership, strengthen its organizational capacity, improve its services, and increase its international activity. The forum was officially registered in December 2005 and currently has ten members. The forum’s past achievements include providing information and analysis on a wide variety of issues related to philanthropy and grantmaking to its members, relevant government and academic institutions, and the media.
