About this grant
The program goal is to foster a widespread culture of giving in Ukraine. Through the Generation Celebration project, the Garage Gang Kollektiv will stimulate creative methods of domestic fundraising while building diverse sources of support for initiatives in the areas of sustainable development, social integration, participation in cultural life, and civic engagement. Using its Web platform www.biggggidea.com, the grantee will link its online efforts with offline activities to encourage, identify, and channel support to creative community projects and social innovations. Garage Gang Kollektiv was established in 2009 in order to build a nationwide network of forward-thinking individuals, businesses, and nongovernmental organizations that could collaborate creatively in addressing the challenges of community and social development. Though based in Kyiv, its active promotion of Web-based initiatives combined with offline travelling road shows give it a national profile.
