About this grant

The project goal is to expand and strengthen the community foundation field in the Western Balkans region. To this end, the Trag Foundation will work to increase the number of community foundations in Serbia and facilitate learning and cooperation among community foundations in the region. More specifically, the grantee will promote the concept and practice of community foundations, facilitate the establishment of new community foundations and develop their capacities. In addition, the grantee will connect the new community foundations to existing networks and initiatives, including the European Community Foundation Initiative. During the past grant period, the Trag Foundation increased its capacity to support community foundation development, researched opportunities for community foundation development in six countries in the Western Balkans and supported the establishment of three new community foundations in Serbia.
