The idea of consolidating N. Novgorod nonprofit organizations was conceived in spring 1994 when Eurasia Foundation arranged a seminar for N.Novgorod nonprofits on the topic of NGO management. This was a unique opportunity for organisations to learn about each other, and mutual problems were discovered. It was decided to create an organization that could provide support for NGOs and advocate for them on the local level. Sluzhenye was formed in June 1994 and formerly functioned as an informal club for NGOs.
