About SIGN

SIGN Network was established in 2009, as one of the most significant and influential networks of indigenous grant-makers in the WB with aim to contribute to the development of sustainable local communities and civil society. Main purpose of the SIGN Network is to promote and support the development of local philanthropy, local communities, cross-sector partnerships and long-term sustainability of civil society in countries in Southeast Europe on national, regional and EU levels.

The network combines strong understanding of local conditions through partnership with grass-roots organizations, think tanks and other local associations; cutting edge experience in developmental grantmaking; renowned expertise in the field of philanthropy, local community development, cross-sector partnerships and sustainable civil society; as well as strategic advocacy partnerships at national and international levels.

SIGN operates as a non-formal network that is governed by the steering group which is comprised of representatives from each member-organization. The steering group is responsible for strategic decisions, admittance of new members and cessation of membership, establishment of ad-hoc structures, fundraising activities and statutory changes. One organization (currently HORUS from North Macedonia) – member of the Network serves as a chairing organization.

 

Members of SIGN Network are:
