The program of financial support was organized by the Co-Fi crowdfunding platform and the National Foundation for the Support of Rightsholders. 

By the end of the 2022, the program will fund more than 100 creative projects in 11 different areas: music, film, design, concert activities, visual arts, television, education, publishing and literature, video blogs and audio podcasts. Selected creative projects will receive approximately 40 million rubles in funding. To participate, organizations and individuals are encouraged to register and apply via the program’s official website.

The program’s organizers announce the names of winners on the 25th of each month. As of now, the third round of the program has just ended. In July, most applications came from writers, directors and musicians. Unlike the previous rounds, this time, the most active applicants and participants of the program were not only from Russia’s largest cities - Moscow and St. Petersburg — but also from Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and Nizhny Novgorod. Hundreds of creative entrepreneurs from Ufa, Samara, Chelyabinsk and other cities from Russia also register on the site on a daily basis. 

The following applicants were chosen by an expert voting committee to receive the “100% support” prize in the amount of 300,000 rubles for their projects: Yana Ksenina for her short film entitled “Clean Meadow" (Moscow - Samara); the Moscow-Tyumen team of creators of the "School of Superheroes” comedy web-series; Natalia Faustova (Moscow) for the her "Lullabies for the Whole Family” album; director Oleg Gritsenko (Moscow region) for his "Captain USSR" short film and the interregional team of creators for their "Bees.
