|Project Name||Great Country|

|Grant Period||September 15, 2010 - September 14, 2012|
The Pontis Foundation is proposing the project Great Country as a way of addressing the sustainability of Slovak NGOs by bolstering the culture of individual philanthropy. Secondly, the project will provide the population with the opportunity to contribute to positive developments in Slovakia. The main tool for achieving this goal is the internet domain www.dobrakrajina.sk, an interactive platform between the public (donors) and those carrying out the work (NGOs and community initiatives). During the next two years, the Applicant is planning to improve functioning of the domain through: • development of a donor database; • acquiring new donors; • a creative promotion campaign for the Great Country; • graphic and technical improvements of the domain Great Country, for example introducing the options to support non-profits through material gifts and volunteer work (manual labor for the organization or sharing of know-how, knowledge, experience, skills, and time) or simplifying of the project selection system.
