During the Forum «Russia is a country of opportunities» a number of events were organized by the Presidential Grants Foundation with the participation of the Foundations’s CEO Mr. Chukalin. At the session «Forms of interaction between young leaders and the Presidential Grants Foundation», the Fund’s grantees were invited to share their vision of the present and future dialogue with the Fund. On the eve of the session, all participants were divided into six groups to form specific proposals to the Fund.
Anastasia Tsvetkova, CEO at Lake Baikal Foundation, headed one of the working groups. Summarizing the opinions of colleagues, Anastasia noted such ideas as creation of a mentoring club consisting of successful grantees, the formation of a pool of social leaders, the need to introduce training programs up to the MBA in managing social projects on the basis of the country’s leading university. In order to improve the effectiveness of grant projects implementation, the desire to assist the Presidential Grants Fund in organizing NPO interaction with the authorities and the media, as well as the importance of establishing cooperation with platforms for intellectual volunteering was expressed.
