In the summer of 2014 SIGN network recorded stories of 5 organizations that participated in the Sustainability Academy program. A video “A good SIGN” was filmed with desire to promote experience civil society organizations gained during the process of fund raising in local communities where they operate. It also presents the results of this program – 52 organizations have raised 92.000 Euro for realization of projects that benefit to entire community. We have recorded stories on successful initiatives from Nikšić, Simin Han, Obilić, Debar and Vrnjačka banja, with support of production house Ciklotron.
All the funds that were raised were doubled by SIGN network members – Trag Foundation (Serbia), Foundation Mozaik (BiH), Fund for Active Citizenship fAKT (Montenegro), Center for Institutional Development – CIRa (Macedonia) and Forum for Civic Initiatives – FIQ (Kosovo), through matching donations that were given to the most successful 34 organizations in the maximum amount of 3000 Eur. During 2013-2014, through this program, organizations have received educational and financial support to raise funds from individuals and companies in their local communities. The program Sustainability Academy is conducted within the project “SIGN for Sustainability” which is financially supported by European Union and Balkan Trust for Democracy.
