Fanack is an independent organization financed by institutions and individuals who share its belief in the importance of publishing and disseminating reliable, unbiased information on the MENA region. Launched by Dr Antonie Dake in 2010, this relatively spontaneous initiative* has grown into a successful platform that provides balanced and informed analysis about the MENA region.
During the start-up phase over the past four years Fanack has shown that it has great potential for expansion. This is why the organization is now seeking to consolidate its financing in order to ensure the initiative’s long-term financial and organizational sustainability.
Fanack is therefore actively seeking partners and investors to support the further development of fanack.com and its theme websites. Individuals and organizations wishing to make incidental or periodic donations can do so by visiting the donations page. Individuals and organizations wishing to make a long-term structural contribution can contact Fanack.
