Most Meaningful Change

Although our community foundation is new and small, we have been tackling three major challenges. The first one is that Hungarian society is increasingly fragmented along lines of political orientation, economic position and social status. Taken together, it makes joint action, such as starting a new organization for the good of all, fairly difficult. The second issue is the economic crisis in the country, the worst in the past 25 years, meaning that everybody became more cautious with their money and reluctant to take risks and try out new things. And the third challenge was the lack of an in-country example to follow, as there were no operating community foundations in Hungary. We reflect regularly on our work and understand that more change-making lies ahead than behind us.
