The Forum for Cities in Transition (FCT) is an international network of mayors, councilors, municipal officials, business people, and representatives of the voluntary and community. The Forum is an initiative of the John Joseph Moakley Chair of Peace and Reconciliation at the University of Massachusetts Boston.
FCT Network Fund is the fundraising arm of FCT member cities and is serviced by Northern Ireland Foundation (Belfast), a registered charity in the UK (No. XT11435). The FCT seed hypothesis remains the guiding principle –one divided society is in the best position to help another and the emphasis on outcomes remains the same, conferences are a secondary consideration;
What matters are projects that either help ameliorate reconciliation in a divided city or allow one city on a higher rung of transition to help a city on a lower rung.
The fund fundraises for the incorporated body or agreed lead organisation of an FCT city group or the FCT Global, as appropriate and where eligible to receive funds, under UK law. Your donations will be distributed to the cross-community projects of FCT Cities and provide them practical financial assistance to deliver outcomes pledged at FCT’s annual international conferences For example, this may include paying for capacity building for a few months, paying for physical materials, paying for venue hire, training or transportation costs to implement cross-community projects.
