Principles of work

Stability

The Fund is a permanent source of financing for efficient charitable organizations.

Expert approach

Organizations to be funded are selected on the basis of a thorough analysis of program activities and a financial audit. In the course of project implementation the Fund carries out regular checks of project related and financial activities of the supported charities.

Cooperation and support

Assistance is provided to the supported charities to help increase their professional level in various fields of activities.

Exposure and transparency

Charities receiving funding have to demonstrate financial transparency to the highest possible degree. In turn, we guarantee to the donors full adherence by the foundation to Russian legislature and provide full financial and activity reports.

Professionalism

The charity understands clearly its tasks and aims, and has all the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve them.
