The VIA Foundation is a private and independent Czech foundation. It was founded in 1997, following activities of a Czech subsidiary of the U.S. Foundation for a Civil Society which had been present in the Czech Republic since 1990.
The VIA Foundation provides grants as well as other assistance (such as seminars and workshops, integrated educational cycles, services to consultants and couches, or vouchers for technical assistance) to a wide range of people from NGOs, donor organizations and municipalities. The VIA assistance is based on three main pillars: support of local initiatives, development of NGOs, and philanthropy.
In cooperation with the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs – within the Transition Promotion Program, the VIA Foundation realizes projects in Serbia that focus on the support to local NGOs through the transfer of know-how and training in organization development, strategic planning and financial sustainability.
