Communications Director of “ISTOKI” Endowment Fund Kirill Olginsky and Evgeniya Belotelova, managing partner of Philin Philgood Group of Companies, told how communications help to develop the non-profit sector.
“Istoki” Fund was founded in 2013 and as of today we have accumulated about 1 bln rubles” – said Kirill Olginsky. “Our endowment was created to support charity programs of the dedicated benefactor. However, we are planning to launch the institute for systemic support for the Russian philanthropy. Besides, the year 2020 helped us understand that digital communications have a key role for development of the non-profit sector. As a result, we came up with the idea to establish an accelerator aimed to help organizations to develop in a consistent manner”.
