About this grant

The project goal is to support the Ana and Vlade Divac Fund to build its capacity to stimulate increased corporate and individual philanthropy in Serbia and to be a leading foundation in the country’s emerging philanthropic sector. With Mott support, the grantee will add key staff positions and strengthen management and governance capacities. The grantee was established in 2007 by Vlade Divac, a successful professional basketball player, and his wife, Ana, with their own funds and proceeds from fundraising events connected with Mr. Divac’s retirement from professional basketball in the United States. The grantee has successfully implemented a range of humanitarian programs and raised substantial funding from the corporate sector, private donations, and through innovative fundraising campaigns and techniques. The grantee is based in Belgrade, Serbia.
