We are putting an unconventional spin on a very traditional idea - in the very dark of January night, we come together to witness a spectacular light display.
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
PLN 127 495 626 is the preliminary result of our Grand Finale fundraiser. Today, at 16:00 sharp the sum in our account has caught up with the preliminary result we announced at midnight on the day of the fundraiser. The count will continue until March 29th, when the result of this year's collection is announced.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 15th edition of our Get Even With Diabetes run could not take place as it always has—in the heart of Warsaw, with hundreds of runners in the iconic orange run t-shirts. Instead, this year the run went digital!
