About this grant

The mission of the Stefan Batory Foundation, the Polish member of the Soros network, is to support the development of a strong and diverse civil society in Poland. This grant supports the foundation’s new strategy to become an endowed grantmaker once George Soros’ financial support finishes. To this end, the foundation will build its institutional capacity through staff training, study visits, and employing legal and financial advisors. In addition, the foundation will strengthen its financial sustainability through diversifying its income and investigating the feasibility of conducting an endowment campaign. The purpose of this grant increase is to improve the Stefan Batory Foundation’s understanding of Polish infrastructure organizations.
