  • When can I register my Collection Centre?

    The 32nd Grand Finale charitable fundraiser was held on Sunday, 28 January 2024. You were able to register your local fundraising initiative (a Collection Centre) from 16 October 2023 till 20 November 2023.  

    There are Collection Centres actively fundraising both in Poland and abroad. 


  • What forms of fundraising are available for my Collection Centre?


    Public Charitable Fundraiser 

    That's the core activity of each Collection Centre – a public charitable fundraiser known as the Grand Finale. However, there can be fundraising events taking place ahead of the day of the Grand Finale. 


    Fundraising Events

    Any event held in aid of our fundraiser and registered in our database can be a fundraising event - it can be a workshop, a sporting event, a dance lesson or a board game marathon, a concert or a local cuisine cook-out or a bake sale - everything depends on your resources and creativity. Remember that you cannot set tickets for a fundraising event - you can ask the participants to donate, however. 


    Collection Centre Stationary Collection Box 

    This Collection Box can be displayed during events held by your Collection Centre. Each time, the Collection Box should be registered, and there should be a volunteer assigned to oversee it. A Collection Centre is allowed to make use of the registered Collection Boxes only. 


    Stationary Collection Box for Companies

    This Collection Box may be registered only by a company with a NIP number. The registration process takes place via iwolontariusz platform, and there should be a volunteer assigned to oversee it.


    Virtual Collection Box 

    A Collection Centre can fundraise online, provided that the virtual collection is registered in our database. Read more about the Virtual Collection box here.


  • Where can I find more information about Collection Centre registration?

    Before rushing to establish your very own Collection Centre make sure there isn't one already registered in your area. It's best to join an already existing Collection Centre or check if other community activists are looking to take part in our winter fundraising extravaganza. More information about Collection Centres and their operation can be found here. Remember to read and follow all relevant rules and regulations.  

  • Who can hold a Stationary Collection Box fundraiser?

    This method of a fundraiser is best suited for companies which want to collect funds on their premises. If you own or manage a company which has offices across the country or a shop or any other business, you might consider putting a GOCC Collection Box on your premises. 

  • How does this type of fundraiser work?

    Our Collection Box and the official notice are placed on company premises, in the location which is open to the public. There are no volunteers involved in this fundraiser. Instead, a publicly available Collection Box is displayed on the premises, or in the shop. An original copy of the notice should be made available at the company head office.

    A "fundraising event" can take different shapes and forms - it can be any activity: a sporting event, a play, a dance competition, board games marathon, performance or a bake-off or a cook-out.
