Since 2004 Partnership Fund supports grassroots activities of local communities for environment and sustainable development.

We encourage local communities in cities and rural areas to undertake environmental initiatives, significant for natural and cultural heritage preservation as well as for improvement of quality of life, state of the environment and landscape.

We work with non-governmental organizations, schools, companies, local governments and other institutions all around Poland. We also undertake international projects in Central and Eastern Europe.
