The program has been modified several times during past seven years, and 51 organization have been supported through it, with the total amount of 141,900.22 Euro.
In 2005 BCIF has started cooperation with VIA Foundation (the funds were provided through donation of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic), using the methodology and experiences of Czech civil sector in maintaining long-term partnerships with individual and corporate donors.
The support to organizations was realized in two phases. The first phase was Little School of Fundraising, consisting of three training modules intended to gain knowledge and skills to create strategic plan and fund raising plan, project management knowledge, and skills to fund raise from both corporate and individual donors.
Nine organizations were granted funds by BCIF,for technical support to project idea developed during training process regarding further fund raising activities.. In the second phase of this program (since January 2011) organizations have tested their skills and knowledge gained in Little School of Fundraising through implementation of fundraising activities in their respective communities. During this phase BCIF is also providing donation matching the funds raised from local sources within community.
