Welcome at the page of the Conference “20 Years of Community Foundations in V4 Countries” that was held in Bratislava, September 19-20 with over 80 participants from Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Turkey, South Africa, U.K and USA .
The Conference’s purpose was to celebrate the 20 years’ of community foundations in the Visegrad region. To enrich the perspectives available we asked those community foundation professionals who came to the region at the ‘beginning’ to reflect on questions about their first experiences in the region, achievements that we should be proud of, funny/weird experiences, and global issues/trends that we should be aware of in the upcoming years. Here are the reflections we have received so far:
Letter of the C.S. Mott Foundation President William S. White to Conference
Reflections of Dorothy Reynolds
The participants of the Conference has also sent a letter to the German community foundations that were meeting on their National Congress on September 19-20 in Heilbronn, Germany.
