The Coordinating Committee summed up the results of the competition, applications for which were accepted in the autumn of 2023. A total of 10,827 public initiatives from 88 regions were submitted. The winners of the competition are 1,559 socially-oriented non-profit organisations whose projects received the highest scores in an independent expert review. The Presidential Grant Foundation will allocate 4.4 billion rubles for the implementation of these projects.
The Coordinating Committee also decided to distribute an additional two billion rubles among 81 regions that applied for co-funding to support socially-oriented non-profit organisations.
The executive bodies of these regions or their authorised regional operators will be responsible for distributing their own funds (3.6 billion rubles) and the received co-funding through open and transparent competitions, following the best practices and recommendations of the Presidential Grant Foundation.
Furthermore, the Coordinating Committee meeting approved the regulations for the next competition of the Presidential Grant Foundation. Projects will be accepted from February 1 to March 15, 2024.
Over the seven years of its operation, the Presidential Grant Foundation has supported more than 43,000 social and cultural projects in all 89 regions of the country. The total budget for these initiatives exceeded 133 billion rubles, with 72 billion rubles financed by the Presidential Grant Foundation. Every year, the Foundation evaluates the results of the supported projects, including the social impact achieved.
