Since it was established, Smart Kolektiv has been striving to diversify the sources of financing of its activities, thus making them long-term and sustainable. In addition to the regular donor financing (institutional or project), we secure funding with the services we provide to companies, social enterprises and civil society organizations, as well as through the development of self-sustainable projects, such as the Good Bag.

Companies hire us to develop corporate social responsibility programmes and strategies, sustainability reports, training for employees, volunteer and other philanthropic programmes, etc.

Donors hire us to empower other organizations through training, coaching, providing connections with the business sector and developing creative campaigns. Donors also directly finance our activities related to social development, such as support to the development of youth entrepreneurship (Youth Business Serbia), and of the social entrepreneurship in Serbia (Smart Academy), etc.

Finally, we are able to realize many activities thanks to partnerships and combining resources with other organizations, with whom we share similar goals. Volunteer engagement of employees from different companies allows us to reduce the cost of activities and develop quality and competitive content for our beneficiarie.

Long-lasting partnerships with donors and companies, which in cooperation with us invest in social entrepreneurship and civil society development:
