The CEE Trust accepts inquiries and
The CEE Trust adopted a more focused approach. As usual we will look for bold ideas, brave positions and strong organizations. More specifically
we will support:
- initiatives and organizations, which work for important issues and causes but cannot rely or cannot accept support from governments, businesses or large constituencies. We will seek to contribute to the stable development of strategic human rights, watchdog and advocacy organizations and policy institutes with clear public policy agenda.
- organizations, coalitions, groups and networks, which have clear position, stand for it and use different tools to make it happen.
- organizations, which demonstrate willingness and clear plans how to build their support base among citizens and find financial support from different sources;
- ideas how to address consistently and effectively problematic legislation concerning the legal environment, consultative mechanisms and support infrastructure for civil society organizations;
- projects and long term strategies intended to promote and develop private, corporate and individual giving.
