The Grand Finale fundraiser is a one-day public charitable fundraiser, which takes place on Sunday in January. The collection is held internationally and managed by the local hubs of activity – Collection Centres. Over 1700 Collection Centres organise the work of hundreds of thousands of volunteers. Our charitable Orchestra “plays” worldwide –wherever there is an active and thriving Polish community abroad: Australia, New Zealand, Japan, across Europe, in the Americas and onboard Polish ships, and even at the North Pole research station!

Grand Finale is a joyous occasion to celebrate the well-aware community, ready to offer unconditional help, to hold a united front for a higher cause. The day is packed to the brim with events, activities, concerts and sporting challenges and the communities get to come together to have fun and raise funds. The initiative inspires people to volunteer and engage in social activism, giving them an opportunity to bond and act together. 

Since 1993, the Grand Finale fundraiser has been held to aid a specific medical objective. Our mission is to support Polish children's hospitals by purchasing modern medical equipment. In addition, we also finance eight medical and one educational initiatives. Benefactors can support the effort by putting money in the Collection Boxes, making online and mobile transfers, and participating in charitable auctions held via the Allegro platform.

At 8:00 PM, we all used to gather to witness a spectacular light show. Known as “Light Up the Sky”, the display brings people together to celebrate the community and illuminate the winter sky with a positive message. Another highlight of the day comes at 11 PM. We auction off some of the most precious lots – Gold Heart pins and Golden SIM Cards are sold during an exciting bidding war broadcast during a live telethon. Finally, at midnight, we announce the preliminary results of the charitable collection.

 

 

 

In the 30 years of our charitable endeavours, we raised over EUR 360 000 000
(over PLN 1 750 000 000).

We donated nearly 70 000 pieces of medical equipment.
