The Bucharest office, led by Alina Inayeh, serves as the headquarters for the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation (BST). In order to harness the tremendous civic energy that exists within the wider Black Sea region as a force for regional integration and good governance, the German Marshall Fund created the Black Sea Trust, a multi-million dollar, 10+-year grantmaking initiative. A public-private partnership modeled on the successful Balkan Trust for Democracy (BTD), the Black Sea Trust works collaboratively with a range of donors to provide grants to indigenous organizations working to strengthen regional cooperation, civil society, and democratic foundations. Initial donors to the Black Sea Trust included the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Ministry of Defence of Latvia, and the Romanian government. The countries included in the Black Sea Trust’s work are Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Turkey, Ukraine, and the regions of Russia bordering on the Black Sea.

The Black Sea Trust funds programs that strengthen cross-border ties, civic participation, democratic governance, and the rule of law in the wider Black Sea region. The broad goals of the Black Sea Trust include building trust among citizens in their public institutions and to strengthen this critical set of institutions; affirming the value of citizen participation in the democratic process; and fostering regional, cross-border ties in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. The Black Sea Trust has four primary grantmaking programs: Confidence Building, Cross-Border Initiatives, Eastern Links, and Civic Participation. The Bucharest office also works on traditional GMF programming and had the lead in organizing the Bucharest Conference alongside the Bucharest NATO Summit in 2008.
