 FIQ and Kosovo Government sign MoU on encouraging a better enabling environment for philanthropy

 

Our goal is to increase awareness about philanthropy and more specifically, engage all relevant actors such as individual and corporate philanthropist to engage in philanthropic giving for projects of public benefit. Simultaneously, we are working closely with CSOs and public institutions to push for the required legislative changes that would result in a more enabling environment for philanthropy in Kosovo. We work  closely with individual philanthropists, businesses, and grassroots CSOs to ensure their voice is heard and recognized and that trust in CSOs revived, while also supporting them in targeting decision makers for relevant policy changes in the local and central governance levels, which will contribute directly to increased education and awareness about philanthropy.
