I am the President of the Academy for the Development of Philanthropy, an organization that initiated and supported CF movement in Poland.
Community foundation (CF) is a good, tested model in many countries. It is a tool for activating people and promoting cooperation for the common good. They fund grants, local culture, sports and education. In the last two decades 20 CFs has been founded in Poland.
I will take part in the Swimaton to raise funds for 4 Hungarian community foundations. I want to swim 500 m in 20 minutes and – with a little help from my friends - I would like to raise min. 1500 pln (111 000 HUF).
The situation of Hungarian NGOs is not easy. Creating and building CFs is a good way to help our friends in Hungary!
