About this grant
Funding will support the Good Neighbours Programme – a series of projects developed by the European Foundation Centre (EFC) to increase effective and transparent philanthropy in Belarus, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine. The goals of the program are to promote an enabling environment for independent giving; strengthen the community of independent funders; and create new foundations, corporate giving programs and community philanthropy. EFC will work with existing national associations of donors, as well as independent donors and when appropriate, their grantees. Activities will include summit meetings; roundtables and thematic seminars; study visits; and information sessions on European initiatives and programs.EFC was established in 1989 by seven European foundations to promote philanthropy in New Europe.
