Most Meaningful Change

In 2014 our foundation celebrates its 15th anniversary. We’ve retained and multiplied the number of the fund’s participants, both benefactors and beneficiaries. Government subsidies from the Ministry of Economic Development have allowed us to provide information and consulting support to socially oriented nonprofit organizations and to conduct research, seminars and training for NGO leaders. In the Tyumen region we helped to create the first community foundation in this rural area.
