The legislative initiative – The philanthropy law of Georgia:
Financial resources for the consecutive work/development of civic society/organizations
The years-long endeavors of the civil society organizations didn’t bring as a result nor the steady growth of the democracy quality, nor sustainable peace and economic growth/social justice.
It is necessary to form civil society and strengthen the responsibility of the civil society organizations by using the resources inside the country, such as: civic responsibility of the citizens and participation, inculcating the volunteering culture, philanthropic contributions of the business sector as well as closer cooperation between the sectors for democratic development, equality, justice and peace.
The working directions include:
- Reworking the philanthropy law (was handed to the parliament for consideration 2 times to – in 2013 and 2014) with participation of other civic society organizations and experts;
- Lobbying the draft law in the Georgian parliament;
- Activities and events meant for inculcating philanthropic culture.
