Financial sustainability of Moldovan CSOs remains a challenge. At the moment, CSOs are primarily dependent on funding from external donors. The Government started making modest, but steady progress in financing some areas of the CSO work. The adopted Strategy for CSO Development in 2012-2015 includes a number of objectives that once implemented will contribute to sustainability of the Moldovan non-profit sector. The workshop “In the Search for Financial Sustainability: Exploring Funding Mechanisms for CSOs” was designed to support local stakeholders in their search for potential sources of funding and provide an overview of mechanisms and practices available for CSOs to fundraise from in Slovakia, Hungary and other European countries.
