The challenges for the open society that the COVID-19 epidemic has posed before us require agility, quick response and flexibility. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, in conditions of reduced financial support for civil society, the Foundation Open Society – Macedonia continues to work dedicatedly on its development and support.

In line with our long-standing commitment to civil society development and empowerment of local communities, FOOM has provided a 55,000 dollars grant scheme within the concept of Community Partnerships for the Promotion of Local Democracy. The purpose of this aid is to provide working conditions in times of crisis for CSOs that are a key segment of a democratic society, and which are affected by the state of emergency, as well as other segments of society.

The grant scheme includes and will provide support for:

Financial aid was provided to the following organizations: Regional Geographical Society GEOSFERA – Bitola, Association of Rural Development Associations Network of LAGs, the village of Krivogaštani, Foundation for Local Community Development, Štip, Media Plus, Stip, Association Multikultura- Tetovo, and the National Roma Centrum.

We at the Foundation Open Society – Macedonia remain committed to the development of civil society and the commitment to the active participation of citizens in society – in creating policies and practices that will provide a free, democratic, multicultural and multiethnic society in which there is room for all.
