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.
Financial Report for 23rd Grand Finale
We make sure to present comprehensive financial report of the purchases and costs of each Grand Finale fundraiser. We are presenting a report detailing the purchases made with the funds raised 1.5 years ago, because of the method we rely on to purchase the equipment for hospitals in Poland. First, we have to get through all requests from hospitals and verify them. Next, we hold open tenders in order to make sure we are purchasing the best equipment at the best prices. We also negotiate equipment delivery, medical personnel training, and service.
We are able to send out a financial report after the equipment has been delivered to medical facilities and after the staff there has been trained to use it, because we are sure that all contracts are properly closed and the money has been spent accordingly.
The theme of the 23rd Grand Finale focused its efforts at children's medicine and geriatrics. In public fundraiser, and through online donations we have managed to raise 53 109 702, 83 PLN.
A brand new roundabout in Gorzów Wielkopolski has been officially named after our charity. We are delighted, especially because the town is located in the vicinity of Kostrzyn nad Odrą, where we host our festival.
The state-of-the-art PET-CT scanner, which will be donated to the Memorial Children's Hospital in Warsaw, was bought at the 54th edition of Open Tender. The device, worth PLN 16 000 000 will be the first digital PET-CT scanner used to diagnose children.
