A major challenge in the upcoming years for the foundation will be securing financial sustainability. Without finding a means for financial security it will be difficult for REPF to continue at its current capacity. It is predicted that western donors will continue to reduce funding to Central and Eastern Europe as world needs for aid shift.
In 2001 REPF began to build an endowment to secure its own financial sustainability and at the same time the future of environmental funding in Romania. The endowment has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past years, increasing to a current value to 2.1 million RON.
This was possible mainly due to the support of the C.S. Mott Foundation that offered two challenge grants, each of 200.000 $ starting with 2004. The condition was to match through fundraising from different sources on a 1:1 basis the amount offered by the MOTT Foundation.
REPF must continue to strengthen itself and to build a secure resource base and gradually reduce its dependency on foreign sources.
