Partners Albania is an independent Albanian NGO established in 2001, working to support civil society and facilitate inter-sector cooperation in order to strengthen democratic institutions and advance economic development. Partners Albania is a member of Partners Network, a partnership of 22 independent, local organisations in Europe, the organisations in Europe, the Americas, Africa and the Middle East working for peaceful and democratic change. The four programmatic areas of PA are: Philanthropic Activity and Supporting Infrastructure; Enabling Environment and Sustainable Development of CSOs; Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation; Participatory, Transparent and Accountable Governance.
Even if there are no community foundations as yet, Partners Albania starts to lead and facilitate the discussion among CSOs and other stakeholders to introduce CFs in Albania as new models of community support. This could lead to the emergence of community foundations in the future.
