For three years, the Kupol Foundation supported 19 projects worth 18,5 million rubles in Chukotka

The non-profit organization Kupol Social Development Fund held a training seminar in Anadyr for those wishing to participate in application campaigns for grants to implement socially significant projects, the press service of the regional government reported. According to the executive director of the fund, Lyudmila Danilova, the event was held within the framework of the XIII reporting conference of the Association of Indigenous Minorities of Chukotka and was timed to coincide with the European Day of Donor Organizations, which is celebrated for the second year in a row on October 1.

- Charity of modern Russia is not so many years. Perhaps that is why thousands of stereotypes, myths and prejudices are associated with it. The society is suspicious of various donor organizations and their activities, most often preferring targeted assistance without intermediaries than supporting funds that deal with the problem in a comprehensive manner. Our organization enthusiastically takes the initiative of the holiday. We are sure that the organization of various master classes, explanatory works, seminars will help people, society to understand the main function of donor associations and to use their services, ”shared Lyudmila Danilova.

She said that a special training seminar in Anadyr was prepared for non-profit organizations of Chukotka, which have the opportunity to receive financial support from the fund.

- In particular, the rules of documentation were described in detail, which, as practice shows, is a difficult process for the contestants. Moreover, our requirements are somewhat different from those that the county Department of Finance makes in order to participate in its grant events, ”Lyudmila Danilova emphasized.

According to her, the workshop participants received practical application design skills with specific examples. This will help them to apply for participation in the grant competition of the fund now. Lyudmila Danilova reminded that at the present time and up to October 31 of the current year, the donor organization accepts applications for the implementation of social projects.

In addition to the seminar, added Lyudmila Danilova, a public audit of projects sponsored by Kupol in 2012-2014 was held during the European Funds Day. The event was attended by about 30 people.

- At the hearings, 19 projects were very lively, which were supported by the Kupol Foundation over the past three years. In total, 18,5 million rubles were allocated for these purposes. On each of the projects, the opinions of those present were heard, positive and negative points were noted. This was very important from the point of view of experience, as the authors of the implemented projects shared their skills, the executive director of the Kupol Foundation drew attention.

According to Lyudmila Danilova, projects sponsored by the foundation have a positive effect, including participants in the audit, who spoke about it. The activity of the donor organization was also given the attention of the governor of Chukotka, Roman Kopin, who noted the active work of the Dome since its inception.

- For more than five years, the Kupol Foundation has been helping to implement social projects in Chukotka, directing at least one third of the budget funds to support indigenous people. This is of great importance for the Okrug, and we highly value the work of the foundation, the governor emphasized.

The non-profit organization Kupol Social Development Fund was established in May 2009 by the closed joint-stock company Chukotka Mining and Geological Company, which owns the unique Kupol gold-silver deposit in Chukotka. In 2014, Northern Gold LLC (the Dvoynoe mine) made a contribution to the fund in the amount of 450 thousand US dollars (300 thousand as long-term capital and 150 thousand in the annual budget). From 2014, the Dome's budget is 400 thousand US dollars.
