Preliminary Financial Report of the 24th Grand Finale
The financial report cycle of the Foundation takes about 1.5 years, because we purchase equipment at an Open Tender and take into account the time it takes to deliver the equipment to the hospitals and train the personnel to use it approptriately.
First we hold the fundraiser in January, raising funds for the chosen medical theme, or a branch of medicne we aim to support. The next step is a careful consideration of the requests submitted by the hospitals. Our team of experts holds an open tender for medical equipment producers in order to choose the best devices that will be donated to hospitals. Another report for the Ministry follows. This time the report concerns the purchases made during the open tender. After the foundation has finalised all purchases and all the accounts are settled we are able to submit the complete report of the result of the fundraiser - both listing the amount of money raised vs the equipment we have purchased. The entire process of financial summary of the Grand Finale fundraiser takes over a year. The detailed report is usually a long document, but individual donors can check exactly how their donations have supported Polish medicine by checking:
