Natalya Kaminarskaya, Emerging Leader, International Fellows Program ~ 2001




Foreign donors and grantmaking institutions in Russia have implemented a few successful joint projects, and the Russia Donors' Forum (RDF), a non-formal coalition of grantmakers, was recently established. The purpose of Natalya Kaminarskaya's paper is to analyze some of the existing types of donor support structures and provide recommendations for the future development of the RDF. The paper includes a series of European and North American case studies, a discussion of appropriate international models, and suggestions for the development of professional philanthropic institutions in Russia. Her concluding section provides recommendations for the roles and functions, membership activities, services provided, finances, and objectives of the RDF.
