Presidential grants: get it, sign it

35
This year, a serious rivalry for presidential grants unfolded between the most diverse non-profit organizations. Hundreds of NPOs took part in the competition for receiving the nth sum from the state to perform a certain type of work, submitting a total of more than 1200 applications. Moreover, among those who submitted such applications were organizations with, let's say, a pro-presidential vector of activity, and obviously oppositional NGOs, a certain number of whom even managed to appear as foreign agents (for example, Levada Center and the For Human Rights movement).




On the possibility of issuing presidential grants to “non-systemic” NPOs, Vladimir Putin spoke about it when he visited the youth forum on Seliger. In the initiative expressed by the president, it was possible to trace the desire of the head of state to somewhat smooth out the sharp edges that were formed between the government and opposition non-profit organizations after the adoption of the law on NGOs, financed from abroad.

The total fund allocated for grants from the president this year amounted to a record amount of 2,32 billion rubles. At the same time, the mentioned 2,32 billion is money from the federal budget. In addition to these funds, the state distributes among the worthy, in the opinion of several specially created commissions, 630 million rubles more organizations through federal subsidies to regional budgets. In other words, 2,32 billion - as if personally from the president, and 630 million - as if from regional representatives.

All the responsibility for choosing worthy lay on the shoulders of half a dozen of those organizations that, apparently, the state fully decided to trust. These include: the National Charitable Foundation, the Knowledge Society, the ISEPI Foundation at the All-Russian People’s Front, the Russian Union of Youth, the Institute of Civil Society Problems, and the National Health League. It was these structures that were supposed to distribute the money allocated to support the work of worthy, according to the president and his representatives, NGOs.

As a result, out of the applications filed by 1200, a positive response from the commission was found around 250. And the satisfied bids were very mixed, and this, apparently, should have demonstrated that the state is not going to focus exclusively on the support of pro-Kremlin organizations and foundations. Supporting the diversity of views is a good thing, but only some of the approved projects still leave a certain sediment ... Although, we can judge this. In the end, it is not we who allocate grants, but the state, and, therefore, the state knows better in this case which support projects are worthy ...

Consider some of the NGOs that have received the financial attention of the Russian authorities.

State support funds received several military-patriotic and civil-patriotic clubs. Representatives of the organization representing the search engine club from Biisk received 300 thousand rubles. An organization from Astrakhan, whose members are engaged in patriotic, legal and physical development, received 1,2 million rubles. 5,6 million rubles received "Association of Knights", engaged in the military-patriotic education of young people. The owner of 6,9 million rubles was the Cossack organization "Imperial convoy" from St. Petersburg. Among the main projects of the "Imperial convoy" is the work of the military-patriotic camp "Valor".

In general, the military-patriotic sector by the commission this time was noted quite actively.

Somewhat surprising is the more than impressive funding of the Institute of Eurasian Studies in the amount of 9,5 million rubles with the average funding level of 3 million. More precisely, it is surprising what kind of work this money was directed on behalf of the president: the project “Great victory gained by unity: the role of the peoples of the Caucasus in the liberation of besieged Leningrad ". Judging by the amount of funding, it seems that someone in our country stubbornly disputes this very role of the Caucasian peoples in breaking the blockade, and the whole institution these people need to prove by all means that "people of Caucasian nationality" showed heroism in breaking the ring a city on the Neva was taken ... Only in the very name of the project does a strange contradiction appear: on the one hand, unity, on the other hand, some special emphasis on the role of exclusively Caucasian peoples? If the conversation is about unity, then why does the party get around the topic of the role, for example, of the inhabitants of the Volga region, Siberia or the Central Black Soil Region in liberating the same besieged Leningrad? .. Why is there any strange division of roles based on ethnicity? ..

Different amounts of funding (up to 1,5 rubles maximum) were received at once by several departments of the Soldiers' Mothers organization. The problem is that in recent years this social movement has also managed to receive numerous conflicting assessments. On the one hand, the Soldiers ’Mothers Committee fulfills the good task of inculcating legal literacy of pre-conscription youth and recruits, as well as those who have already gone" demobilization ", to protect conscripts from non-statutory relations in the army. But there is a reverse side to the activities of this organization. Increasingly, the Committee is turning to those young people who wish to use it for the purposes of, say, a “slope” from the army. And if such appeals become more frequent, it means that there is some return in relation to draft dodgers ... I don’t want to make any definitely negative conclusions about this, but there is something to think about ... I would like to hope that the commission that distributes the means of presidential funding has chosen worthy.

By the way, the leaders of the Soldiers' Mothers movement, despite the fact that their projects were awarded grants from the president, still express their discontent. For example, Ms. Melnikova, who is the executive secretary of the Union of Soldiers ’Mothers Committees, does not understand why the organization she represents was given 1,2 million when she needed exactly 4 million. “For only one rented premises,” Melnikova said, “you need to pay a thousandth 400 debt. Like, not a grant, and so - laughter ...

A total of 9 million rubles will receive such public organizations as "Stopham" and "Piggy against." The first organization draws the attention of the public to the boorish behavior of some drivers, who often confuse sidewalks and pedestrian crossings with parking areas, and, bulging eyes, resent that their violation and boorish behavior are filmed on video with further plans for publication on the Web. The second organization is engaged in the search and demonstration of poor-quality (including expired) products placed on the shelves of stores.

2,8 received a million rubles "Levada Center", about a million rubles of state support received various branches of the "Memorial", which is already recorded in foreign agents. Even Lyudmila Alekseeva with her MHG still retains the chances of receiving presidential financial assistance to continue her activities and develop her organization. Does the ideological fighter against the Russian authorities really take Lyudmila Alekseeva from the “clawed clutches” of federal officials for their Moscow-Helsinki group? How will this dock with its ultra-opposition? Yes, and dock ... Money, as you know, does not smell. Perhaps the mother of the Russian opposition will decide on the reorientation of the work ... Another thing is that the amounts are far from those that came from foreign sources, but for the first time - that's enough ...

In general, the directions of financing from the state budget are different. In this regard, I would like to count on the fact that the commissions for the distribution of grants have approached their work with full responsibility and have not allowed painful punctures. And it will be, to put it mildly, somehow strange, if it turns out that the budget money in our country provides services to draft dodgers, russophobes and adherents of the “white ribbon” ...

        fellow So this is where the dog is upset ... It’s a pity that such questions are left to some organizations. Why not vote online? All organizations submit applications. The most famous or most promising are selected and go to the government’s website. Then there’s no skepticism for such decisions.

      while I support the “stopham” movement. and if our state is not yet in a position to deal with violators of the rules in the proper amount, then it has the right to support such undertakings. in the end, the money is spent more profitably here than in Rusnano.

        I agree with you - and "stopham" is needed, but when public. When the grants were sent, I think it will be no longer .., someone someone will try to "steer" either the official, or on their own. grant to aim .... Yes, and honestly even this money could find a more worthy application for search engines, for example, more, how many are still unburied and unknown, as well as practically everything keeps on enthusiasts.

          guys, I don’t argue here. you understand correctly, it’s just how a public organization supports them, and not as a “Kremlin project.” We have something similar in Tomsk (on a slightly different topic and without grants). The guys themselves are building horizontal bars in courtyards, make hockey boxes. I wanted to write a post about this in order to search for like-minded people to share experiences, but somehow somehow my hands do not reach

          here is an example of their (and my very modest participation, unfortunately) activities. one of many. all on a voluntary basis, free of charge and free of charge. by the way, if like-minded people can still be found here, then under the video there is a link "in contact", I can give the organizer’s phone number (I’ve clarified this question with his consent), I can (if interested) write a post about this within three to four days.

            I forgot to clarify, this is a holiday in a Tomsk orphanage on a sports ground, built by the participants of the movement for free, as a gift to children. The guys on the horizontal bars are not gymnasts, just enthusiasts, let's say tak.nu and I want to express my special admiration to the professional gymnast (Olympian) Anton Golotutskov who supported this idea and was present at the repetition of this holiday (there is a video too, but I don’t think it’s worth overloading yet.). You can’t imagine how much joy the children brought to the orphanage won the Olympics. It’s somehow

    stopham a useful movement, the guys sincerely try to put things in order, but this is a drop in the ocean and Don Quixote’s struggle with windmills, the problem of congestion and expansive collapse must be solved by serious means, at a serious level, With rudeness everything is also serious, because it’s became the norm for very many. Rudeness is a consequence of the huge social stratification, and elementary disrespect for others, the lack of a single between people and living in the same city, what grants are there. And a word like that, in Russian not to say something, or it will turn out funny.

Some Caucasians for the liberation of Leningrad, some Cossack convoy of some emperor, I have never seen a real Cossack, only mummers and still a photo from the Cossack SS division, who do these organizations help at all? And they also pay people's money for this "help", you see, I’ve made a big mistake with the profession, I had to go to some fund to work, I’m throwing mud at the authorities, and you’re for it they also pay money, beauty!

      You understand that because you explained in the article crookedly.
      On the Internet, articles, videos and websites that destroy Russia (in short) are distributed, this is done with foreign grants.
      This initiative is intended, on the contrary, to strengthen Russia with domestic grants. Grants will not be given to “oppositionists” and other villains.
      The Caucasians defending Leningrad were mentioned in the article in order to whip up the negative around this initiative.

        Gregory, you are wrong. It’s nevertheless to pump the negative around the initiative and ask the commission why the grant was given to this initiative and not to a dozen other similar ones, if you don’t talk about any other article on this topic ...

          Alexey, I'm glad you answered. Maybe I'm wrong. But the initiative with domestic grants is useful and constructive. From my point of view, it is necessary, first of all, to reveal the useful meaning of events, without shifting the emphasis of providing information to individual details.
          I am convinced that it is professionalism enough for you to give a balanced, unbiased look at events without having to lay in the material elements that will necessarily and consciously be picked up, and will lead the development of the discussion as a whole to good news in a negative plane. I am sure of that. Sincerely.

            Grigory, it seems to me that you yourself jumped at the news of the initiative to provide a grant to the researchers of the breakthrough of the defense of Leningrad by the Caucasians. The article presents many other examples: grants to search parties, patriotic clubs, the same movement "Stopham!" So, frankly, about any "shifting the emphasis of the presentation of information" is not even a question. Different options are presented, and the readers themselves have the right to choose what excited them more. It’s another matter that Alekseeva and these people paid more attention to the article than to the same search boys - I confess, I could not help it smile

      weird question. Any organization needs funds to function. Cabinets / offices to rent, print (posters, at least) about their activities, and in fact - activities (the same "Stop Ham" was spent on printing stickers). And where does the Organization get these funds - if it not profit oriented?

      For example:
      "Stop Ham" - wonderfully organized. They first choose the venue, notify law enforcement and advise its members how not to go beyond the law. It is good that among them there were lawyers acting on a voluntary basis.

      If you receive a grant, the guys will expand their activities. Attract ext. people (not voluntarily, but for denyuzhku) - Do you think it will get worse?

    By type of activity, we were involved last year for the examination of financial documentation of innovative projects in our area. Based on the documents reviewed, I made the following judgment for myself:
    1. Percent of 20 projects - these are really projects that are being implemented and most likely are innovative (they could only form an opinion about this side);
    2. Another 20 percent of projects can and are innovative, but the documents are drafted clumsily - in the sense there is a suspicion that some kind of diagram is present (although this may be related to the peculiarities of doing business in our country);
    3. As regards the remaining projects, this either does not apply to innovation at all, or through the available verification capabilities it is clear that money through toadstool companies is simply driven in order to create the appearance of activity.
    Although the idea itself is in principle a good one, it’s another matter that those crooks who revolve around do not bear any responsibility for the fact that they require money for false projects. Although by and large there are signs of fraud.

    More precisely, it is surprising what kind of work this money was directed on behalf of the president: the project “The Great Victory obtained by unity: the role of the peoples of the Caucasus in the liberation of the besieged Leningrad”.

    I greatly respect the soldiers of the Great Patriotic War of any nationality. But how many Caucasians were among them? Chechens, for example, in 1942 were evicted from 50 people. There were so few of them! And other peoples of the North Caucasus were small. They also resettled many. There were few people in Transcaucasia either. 000 million Azerbaijanis (1 million in 1989), Armenians and Georgians, too. In the 6 millionth USSR. So if you look, they could not make a decisive contribution. Previously, we were hung up with noodles that the war was won by the penal battalions, later by the Americans, and now a new trend - they saved the people of the Caucasus, and the Russian Vanka was lying on the stove.
