Как финансируется правозащитная деятельность?

- Из тысяч организаций лишь сотни имеют какие-то денежные вливания. Большинство... ну просто работают. В Апатитах завуч и учительница создали организацию. Когда в школе прекращались занятия, она выделяла комнатку. В Ростове муж и жена жили в коммунальной квартире, так у них на лестнице стояла очередь в приемную. А те, кто имеет деньги, получают их из двух источников. Раньше это были почти целиком западные гранты. Фонд Сороса, Форда, Белля. Бюджетные деньги мы не можем брать, потому что наша задача - защищать гражданина от государства, а кто девушку ужинает, тот ее и танцует. Но последнее время стали появляться и отечественные деньги. Например, в Приволжском округе местные предприниматели и полпред президента проводят тендеры на лучший социальный проект и дают деньги из своей казны. Недавно мне сказали, что сейчас 60 процентов денег, которые получают наши общественные организации, идет из российских частных фондов. Правда, они финансируют социальные программы, а не правозащитные. Но наши предприниматели очень зависят от правительства. Если мы получаем у них деньги, то это значит: им свистнут - и они нас бросят.

- Какие у вас отношения с властями?

ну и непроверенное-ссылки битые
1.В этом году, фонд Форда выделил организации "Мемориал" – три транша.
- Самому обществу непосредственно - http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?111185
(Основное целеполагание гранта – фальсификация истории России и СССР).
Так и написано - For education and advocacy on both contemporary problems of human rights abuse and historical issues concerning past repression…. Этот проект был оценен в 895 тысяч долларов.
- Другой – конкретизировано на фальсификацию истории СССР
http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?111176 – на создание виртуального музея Гулага и создание документационной базы по зверствам Сталина.
-За освещение зверств Сталина – Мемориал получит 200 тысяч долларов США за два года.
-Третий – на развитие новых технологий сервиса по оказанию правозащитной поддержки гражданам. 250 тысяч долларов. http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?110390

Из моментов, на которые стоит обратить внимание – фонд Форда, совместно с фондом МакАртура продолжают финансирование правозащитного центра г. Пермь.
За три года Фонд Форда вложил в это направление – 415 тысяч долларов, http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?111184 http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?100969
http://www.fordfound.org/grants/database/detail?108325, что совместно с инвестициями МакАртура ( напомню, как-то писала об этом - http://marina-yudenich.livejournal.com/490879.html ) составило 1,3 миллиона долларов.

Кстати, в последние годы наблюдается системный процесс регионализации грантового финансирования. Если до 2001 года, 95 процентов денег инвестировалось в Москву, и 5 в Санкт-Петербург, то теперь ситуация несколько иная.
Общее процентное разделение на 2010 год 60 (Москва) 15 (Санкт-Петербург) 25 – другие регионы.
Объём инвестиций в культурные сторонние проекты не изменился.
С 2004 года объём грантовых американских денег направленных на поддержку правозащитной деятельности вырос в 4,5 раза.
Большинство грантов, поступающих в регионы, напрямую друг с другом не связано.
На смену засвеченной в шпионском скандале Белоны (СПБ+Мурманск), грантовая поддержка которой пошла на спад – стабильную финансовую помощь получает МПД Воронежа и вышеуказанный центр в г. Пермь.
Единственной «общей», для всех регионов программой, финансируемой преимущественно МакАртуром – была борьба с системой МВД и ГУИН.
