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:

Great Anytime Gift. Customized Hand Stamped Flatware Dinner Spoon With Your Own Text~ Unique

Customized Hand Stamped Flatware Dinner Spoon With Your Own Text~ Unique, Great Anytime Gift.: Handmade. Your custom phrase will be hand stamped on a NEW stainless steel flatware spoon. Flatware pattern varies based upon availability. I can fit most phrases and will email you if there is any problem with your desired text. You can have 8 to 10 characters on a line and 3 lines--if it is slightly more I will see if it can fit and let you know so please contact me first. If you are looking for quantities for a special occasion such as a wedding, bridal shower, birthday party etc. Please contact me for more information about this. The standard spoon used will be teaspoon sized. All of the flatware I use is NEW Stainless Steel. If you hand wash the spoon, rather than place it in a dishwasher, the black ink will last a long time. Each letter/number is stamped by hand, one at a time by me. The letters/numbers may not be perfectly straight or perfectly lined up because I am not using a machine to stamp with. I do my best to achieve a perfect result. Font size is 3mm (approx. 1/8") What a wonderful, economical, one-of-a-kind gift. 。 。 。
