Preliminary Result Tallies with the Sum in our Account
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 fundraiser's day. The count will continue until March 29th, when the result of this year's collection is announced.
The preliminary result of the Grand Finale fundraiser is based on estimate results we receive from local Collection Centres, on the results of online fundraisers and a preliminary tally of the online auctions. Each year we launch an online counter, which is updated twice daily to show our fundraiser's progress. Our custom is to stop the counter once the sum in our account catches up with the preliminary result. The big count of funds will go on behind the scenes until the result of the Grand Finale 2021 is eventually published on March 29th, 2021.
