Representatives of the charity have officially launched the work of two state-of-the-art pieces of equipment at a major children's hospital in Łódź. The GOCC donated CAT scanner and x-ray worth PLN 6 000 000.
1% Charitable Tax Donation
Every individual taxpayer can choose a non-governmental organization or public benefit organization that will receive 1% of their tax return. Donations are easy, hassle-free, and provide tangible support to various charitable organizations across the country. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation is also eligible for the donation. This year, we will raise money to provide children's hospitals in the entire country with state of the art equipment and overhaul the devices we donated in the past. The deadline for submitting your tax returns in Poland falls at the end of April, so it's high time to make your decision!
These 1% of tax donations provide sizeable support to our charity. The money we raise will address some of the most serious needs of Polish public medicine. Last year we helped psychiatric wards for children and young adults. Thanks to the money raised in the 1% charitable drive, we sent equipment and furniture to 37 psychiatric wards across the country. We overhauled and transformed how these wards operate on a day-to-day basis. We are still a long way to go before the level of care and conditions in these wards. Still, we have made the first, essential steps on the road to recovery when it comes to access to psychiatric facilities and mental healthcare providers and the conditions at these hospitals, says the Medical Affairs Director of the GOCC, Lidia Niedźwiedzka-Owsiak
We raised PLN 17 234 732 (over EUR 3 800 000) through 1% tax donation. Polish revenue allows taxpayers to choose a non-governmental organisation which will receive a donation amounting to 1% of their tax.
PET / CT scanner is a highly advanced diagnostics device in treating children. The facility, worth over several million PLN is the first machine tailored to diagnose the youngest patients. The purchase will be made as part of the 54th Open Tender held by our charity.
