Open Estonia Foundation Charity Profile
The Open Estonia Foundation (OEF) is a non-governmental not-for-profit foundation that was established in April 1990 with the support of the Hungarian-born American philanthropist George Soros. The mission of the foundation is the development of an open society in Estonia. Our programs are driven by a vision of democracy, civil society, social responsibility, and equal opportunities in the democratic decision making process.
Up to date, the grants provided and the projects initiated by the OEF exceed 400 million Estonian kroons. Our activities have ranged from kindergartens and school reforms to contemporary art, help for the aged and legal reforms. Today, our focus is on building a stronger Europe, strengthening the civil society, and sharing experiences of transition as well as reinforcing principles of participatory democracy and equality.
Open Estonia Foundation initiates programs and projects itself as well as in co-operation with other organisations. OEF also conducts open grant competitions.
