FSD Regional Support Centers

The Regional Centers (RC) that identify priority areas of activity and promote region-specific networking and partnership development are an essential link in the work of the Fund for Sustainable Development (FSD). These Centers operate under the auspices of experienced non-profit organizations (NGOs) – see map and information on RC geographic reach (List of RF Subjects) and contact information in the Supplement.  The Centers were founded to build bridges between regions, to strengthen ties between governmental and non-governmental organizations and to further advance cooperation with donors and international NGOs.

The RCs are actively involved in project monitoring, short-term and long-term project evaluation, and networking. Jointly with FSD, they organize training and presentation seminars, exchange programs, and regular RC seminars. These seminars provide a forum to discuss the impact of FSD projects; local priorities; replication and dissemination of FSD’s successful results; program monitoring; improvements in the economic, environmental and social spheres; promotion of civil society; RC participation in public expertise for major regional projects; and support of public initiatives directed toward social improvements.

RC involvement in FSD grantmaking and information exchange activities has considerably expanded their resource potential, strengthened the network of partnership organizations, and expanded the process of institutionalization and multi-sector interaction on a national and regional level. RCs maintain their own unique databases on partners, projects, and donors.  They have extremely effective communication channels and information networks and maintain their own regularly updated websites that inform local communities about FSD activities, new developments, and project impacts.

The RC staff, which has been trained to work with grant applicants and grantees, carries out everyday coordination activities across all of Russia.
