GlobalALbaniansFoundation

Establishing the Global Albanians Foundation (GAF) Last month, the Massachusetts Albanian American Society (MAASBESA) and the Albanian American Women’s Organization – Motrat Qiriazi (AAWO) announced their partnership to develop the Global Albanians Foundation (GAF). MAASBESA and AAWO recognize that while not-for-profit organizations play vital roles in economic and social development throughout all phases of a country’s growth, the non-profit sector often receives diminishing support from donors as countries develop. Through establishing GAF, they aim to provide financial support to effective not-for-profit organizations that may otherwise struggle to provide sustainable services. MAASBESA and AAWO “propose that creating a Foundation that initially focuses on giving small grants targeting many different not-for-profit organizations throughout the countries in Southeastern Europe where Albanians live is the best way to reach and assist a wide and diverse group of people and organizations.” Albanians living abroad who wish to support not-for-profit organizations in Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro will provide the financing for GAF.
