The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

How have the Priorities of Russian Philanthropists and CSR Managers Changed?

The charitable sector in Russia is most often associated with the largest fundraising foundations. The contribution of donor organizations to the development of philanthropy is estimated at 100 to 300 billion roubles annually. Corporate foundations and socially responsible companies not only implement their own programmes, but also act as donors of funds for the development of the sector and its infrastructure. They provide grants for project implementation, co-finance training and internships for non-profit organizations’ employees, support research and various activities of the sector. Reduced revenues, the closing of borders, the departure of foreign companies from Russia, and the lack of Russian software analogues have led to new challenges for the development of the charitable sector. The stability of the charitable community as a whole will depend on whether donors can support public organizations and projects. How have sanctions and the new economic and political reality affected the landscape of the charitable sector? What challenges will Russian charities face in the nearest future? How to rethink and reconstruct the model of partnership between the state, non-profits and business in order to minimize social tensions in the regions? What can the non-financial contribution of foundations and companies be? How to motivate business to participate in charitable projects?
