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:

Trag Foundation (Serbia)                

Trag is a regional foundation that encourages and supports active engagement of citizens in local community development in the last 20 years. We are gathering people who believe that small changes can make a big difference and desire to be initiators of positive change in their communities. Through the years, we supported over 1400 successful projects with over 11.5 million EUR across Serbia and the Western Balkans region. 

Fund for Active Citizenship – fAKT (Montenegro) 

Fund for Active Citizenship is the only indigenous foundation in Montenegro providing grants to civil society organizations. Our program is focused on two areas:  building capacities for participation and philanthropy development thus contributing to social change characterized by a growing number of people participating actively and responsibly in social and political life of the society.
