The experts chose the winners at the in-person meeting, 41 applications at the top of the ranking were selected at this stage of the competition.

It should be noted that the geography of the competition continues expanding: organizations from Irkutsk and Kirov regions, Stavropol and Khabarovsk Kray are among the winners.  For the first time, not only capital regions became the leaders of the competition by the winners’ number.

The winners of the July Round in the “NGO. Going Agile” nomination help various vulnerable groups: apart from traditional support to beneficiaries with a special health status and their social rehabilitation, the winners work with children and adults with mental disorders, HIV positive people and domestic violence victims.  

The winners of the “Museums. Culture. New Form” nomination continue changing their activities due to new operation environment and actively develop new areas of work. They implement projects that foster local communities consolidation, creation of inclusive environment and socialization for people with special needs.

The General Director of the Foundation, Oksana Oracheva: «I am glad to announce the decision to increase the grant fund from 100 to 140 million roubles. We made this decision because we observe highly professional and incredibly motivated winners striving to help people who need this help most. Most of the winners see the Foundation grants as an opportunity for long-term organizational development: they are structuring fundraising systems in a new way and launching CRM in NGO; they are upgrading museums and libraries websites  and developing new online products which will be in demand when mass visitors will return.  This strategic approach to grants implementation inspires confidence that most vulnerable groups of people will receive professional support. Parents with disabled children, people who need social rehabilitation, people with special needs and people with infectious diseases are among these groups. We are inspired by the examples of our grantees and believe that we will overcome existing social challenges together”.  

Totally, during 4 months, 2701 applications from 82 regions have been submitted for the competition “Common Cause”. 105 organizations have won.

The goal of the competition “Common Cause” is to help the non-commercial and culture sectors to overcome the current crisis and move successfully towards new working formats. The competition is held in two nominations “Museum. Culture. New Form” and “NGO. Going Agile”. The results are announced every month from March to September 2020. The sum of the grant can be up to 1 million roubles.
