Abstract: The paper aims to outline the possibilities and the tools of financing of social development of rural communities in Ukraine the socioeconomic potential of civil society institutions having being taken into account. The issue is considered pressing due to the lack of contributing and focused research into social factors of socioeconomic reforms, both expected and implemented in the country at the level of rural settlements and districts. Another reason to bring the issue into the foreground is the current ineffectiveness of the conventional means of socioeconomic impact employed to balance humanitarian and economic constituents of rural development. Finally, the issue reveals the unheeded importance of continuous cooperation of various agents of reform. In the paper, the system approach, the method of logical models constructing, the comparative approach, and the case method are used as the research techniques. The research argues that methodologically and technically the participation of civil society in solving a set of social problems in rural areas should not be limited to the spectrum of rural civil institutions (community-based organizations). The potential of the national sector of non-profit non-governmental organizations, as well as the possibilities of assistance of international institutions are also relevant. The paper offers the methods of financing the social sphere of rural areas through civil society efforts. The author gives the reasons for the wider use of crowdfunding, social bonds and some other innovative financial tools in Ukraine to finance the social development of rural areas. The paper claims that the specific economic and organizational measures for enhancing of financial impact of civil society are required to facilitate the social development of rural areas in Ukraine. The set of the relevant measures are to be developed and exploited by the civil society organizations in conjunction with the state authorities responsible for the implementation of the social policy’s agenda in Ukraine. The priorities and the activity tasks for the civil society and for the public agencies are identified in the paper as well.
