Donor aid to Kosovo, particularly financing earmarked for civil society, seems set to decrease over the next decade. We at the Kosova Women’s Network (KWN) do not want shifts in foreign funding to jeopardize our ongoing work in serving, protecting and promoting the rights of women and girls in Kosovo and beyond.
Therefore, we launched a new fundraising imitative in December 2012. Since then, KWN has already raised $4,810 (€3,681) from individuals in the U.S. and Albania.
Of this funding, $1,500 (€1,135) has been set aside for KWN’s Sustainability Fund, which supports crucial costs that KWN cannot cover with funding from traditional donors, as well as KWN’s long-term fundraising vision (click here for information about our vision).
The other $3,310 (€2,546) raised to date has been earmarked for KWN’s Oral History Initiative (see here). A generous supporter has agreed to match dollar-for-dollar every donation made to this Initiative. Therefore, your donation will be worth double if you support this Initiative!
Thanks to our fiscal sponsor, East-West Management Institute in New York, individuals living in the U.S. can now make tax-deductible donations by check (info here) or credit card.
We thank everyone who has already contributed, and we hope others will consider becoming KWN supporters today!
