One of the main objectives of ECOM is to help expand funding for national LGBT community organizations and other organizations providing services for LGBT people in EECA countries. An important component of this objective is to analyze the experience of obtaining alternative fundraising to improve the quality of life of LGBT communities in EECA countries, including through work with the embassies of other states.
Interviews with representatives of non-governmental organizations in EECA countries, as well as information from open sources, were used in the development of this report. Respondents were selected by open invitation as ECOM members. Respondents described the practices that they considered the most significant for reflecting their experiences cooperating with embassies.
