Developing philantropy

Another important pillar of our work is local philanthropy development, so as to strengthen the use of local resources (both human and financial) which we view as one of the key elements in the sustainability of civil society initiatives. To that purpose, we initiated and funded a research on the history and tradition of philanthropy in Montenegro, entitled “Examples of Philanthropy in Montenegro by the end of the XX century” (by Dragutin Papovic), organized two round tables on philanthropy, and successfully introduced ISKRA – Philanthropy Excellence Award, for individual and corporate philanthropy. In order to spread influence of the award, fAKT succeeded to bring important stakeholders on this issue as partners: Montenegro Chamber of Commerce, Montenegro Government Office for Sustainable Development and Center for Diaspora.
