SOLIDARNA is a thematic-community Foundation rooted in values and understanding of social problems and a vision of social change, that is shared with multiple human rights organizations and activists across the Republic of Croatia, the region, Central Europe, and the continent. All that is reflected in its organizational structure.
In the initial stage of development, the active contribution of the founders was crucial for SOLIDARNA Foundation and key for building relationships with civil society initiatives, the business community, the media, and citizens.
The initial property of the Foundation of € 5,000.00 was collected by small but valuable donations from all 55 founders, both individuals, and organizations.
The Foundation Board is the main governing body that meets once a month and oversees the work of a director, adopts internal procedures, sets up foundation councils and specialized working groups, and makes strategic decisions on program development and fundraising.
Foundation councils are permanent or ad-hoc councils whose members voluntarily contribute to the work of SOLIDARNA, and are appointed by the Foundation Board at the proposal of the director. Foundation councils are established to manage funds such as the Desa & Jerko Baković Fund, the #saveme Fund or the 5.5 Fund, or as advisory bodies to assist the SOLIDARNA team in its work, growth, and development, such as the Foundation Council for fundraising and relations with donors, or the Program team COURAGEOUS.
