About this grant
The Russia Donors’ Forum was established in 1996 by a group of western donors active in supporting the development of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The group currently includes donor organizations active in other areas as well as organizations based in Russia. The forum promotes civil society in Russia by enhancing the effectiveness of organized grantmaking through networking, information sharing and collaborative initiatives among active grantmakers.Funding will enable the forum to strengthen its ability to provide its members with services. Objectives include improving communication among forum members, developing service packages, expanding the membership base and developing an outreach strategy. This includes a grant increase to cover the costs of hosting an event for the European Foundation Centre’s Governing Council Mission of Leaders of Foundations and Corporate Citizens in October 2002.
