Nadace Open Society Fund Praha / Open Society Fund Prague
The Open Society Fund (OSF) Prague was established in 1992 as a member of the international network of Soros foundations. Since the very beginning it has been a significant independent organization with a number of specific features giving it a unique position among Czech foundations: receiving support from a private international donor, it is able to take a flexible approach to the current needs of society; to accept a healthy amount of risk when supporting projects; to support long-term projects aiming to initiate system changes and responding to some controversial issues; to bring into the Czech Republic successful innovative methods, and give systematic support to international cooperation. Main Program Areas of the OSF Prague are: rule of law; human rights and antidiscrimination; strengthening the civil sector and civil society; international cooperation. Most of the programs and projects that the OSF Prague is supporting and intends to support seek to help achieve systemic and/or legislation changes, or major changes in the current practice. The important thing about the programs run by the OSF Prague is that they are backed by the partnership with a number of organizations and that they are mostly long-term schemes.
