We directly support community initiatives that are created and led by the active citizens in our community.

And we plan to organize numerous events that engage the entire community: local businesses, institutions, media and local non-profits.


OYF designs all its programs and projects to simultaneously respond to specific local needs of the community, but also invests resources in sustainable programs and long-term partnerships with local, national and international stakeholders. Today, OYF is one of few local community foundations in Serbia.

OYF programs are focused on these three strategic areas:

  • Directly support community initiatives led by active citizens
  • Promotion of local philanthropy & building the community spirit
  • Strengthening and development OYF as a community foundation in Serbia and the region

We currently have two local funds that directly support community initiatives:

Neighbourhood initiatives fund & Youth Fund
