The Ferencvaros Community Foundation

The Ferencvaros Community Foundation

Budapest

In 2011, their goal with the reception of the community foundation methodology was to spread the culture of community fundraising / donation to balance the excessive dependency of civic initiatives on state / LG funds.

Unlike other CFs in the region, FKA do not accept state or LG funding – their peculiarity is their involvement in innovative ways of fundraising, finding local funding for local initiatives, micro-grantmaking following international examples. They are also doing community building with community events and their project Radio9, a community online radio station strengthening the local publicity.
