Garage at the 4th International Forum Endowments 2020. Space for Collaboration

18 November 2020


Garage is organizing the session Foundations and Donors: Culture of Interaction, which focuses on developing relationships with donors and patrons.

Despite the fact that endowments are not new to Russia, the way they function and the culture of donating require additional promotion. In this session, experts from a range of cultural institutions will discuss the key issues related to endowments in Russia: attracting donors from the private sector; collaborating with corporate donors in the absence of tax deductions for businesses; international experience and aspects of fundraising specific to Russia.

The forum Endowments 2020, which this year will take place online, is organized by the Vladimir Potanin Foundation and the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO.


Alexander Svistunov, Director, Garage Endowment Fund, Moscow.

Evgeny Stodushny, Director General, Krasnoyarsk Regional Philharmonic Society.

Svetlana Burianova, Executive Director, Russian Academic Youth Theater Endowment Fund.

Luminita Holban, Head of Grants and Trusts, English Heritage, London.


Liudmila Panteleeva, Social Investments Director, REGION Asset Management.


The forum is an expert platform focusing on creation and development of endowments for noncommercial organizations working in the social sphere. It presents best practice and new tools for the promotion of the endowment model, and provides a space for discussion of how to create a more sustainable social environment.

In 2020, the program is focused on partnerships and interactions, socially engaged design and the opportunities created by endowments in the aggregation of resources for a common goal.
