Welcome to Our Endowement!
The place to meet, make friends and associates, to freely exchange opinions, open to all. Our Endowement is a space for joint work of citizens and organizations of civil society, for developing new ideas, initiatives and actions.
With the spirit of tolerance, solidarity and cooperation, Our Endowement will provide space for the free work of civil society organizations on the development of basic democratic principles and civic activism in Serbia.
We want you to feel at home in Our Endowement – for it will be.
Our Endowment is a new model of linking organizations, which due to their long-standing autonomous work have become pioneers of struggle to increase transparency and accountability of governmental institutions, socially responsible role of media and civic activism.
Through the work of Endowment we want to bring closer to the citizens values and principles we believe in, which we represent in Serbia and which we want to transfer to new generations. We want Serbia governed by Law and justice, we want open and responsible institutions and open-minded and active citizens.
Through its work Our Endowment will promote the values of charity, volunteerism, solidarity and support to other organizations and initiatives, transparency of financing and democratic governance.
Our Endowment presents potential to develop new models of financial and social sustainability, and to gain larger support from citizens for values that democratic civil society is striving for – through more open and transparent communication with them.
Endowment is designed as financially self-sustainable model and the promoter of social entrepreneurship as well as the new, innovative approach of civil society organisations in communicating with citizens.
The premises as well as initial resources invested in new models of social enterprises will enable the financial autonomy of Endowment and its programs, the autonomy of the founder- organizations, as well as the implementation of programs aimed at building trust among the citizens and supporting wider civil society – civic initiatives, individuals and organizations that need support.
