Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation

A public-private partnership modeled on the successful Balkan Trust for Democracy (BTD), the Black Sea Trust works collaboratively with a range of donors to provide grants to indigenous organizations working to strengthen regional cooperation, civil society, and democratic foundations.

Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation

The broad goals of the Black Sea Trust will be four-fold: to rebuild trust in public institutions; to affirm the value of citizen participation in the democratic process; to strengthen a critical set of institutions that lie at the nexus of state and society; and to foster regional, cross-border ties in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
