Become an IWC DONOR
Now in existence for over 26 years, The Charity Foundation of International Women’s Club continues to strive to expand the diversity of programmes and offerings to the community. It is our mission to assist Bulgarian groups and institutions to more effectively meet the needs of the most marginalised populations in the country, especially, but not exclusively, women, the elderly, children deprived of parental care, those who are mentally or physically disabled and ethnic minorities.
In order to meet our mission and provide services to our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to serve people in our community each year.
Over the recent years the activities of the IWC foundation increased significantly, one indicator of which is the increased number of projects that are funded by the club, and the acceptance of proposals from first-time applicants, with whom the IWC has not worked before.
The Foundation continues to support projects in the fields in which it has determined the greatest need such as:
- Emergency level assistance
- Support to disabled people
- Social integration of orphans and children deprived of parental care
- Women’s issues
- Equal access to education, educational and training needs
In response to the constantly changing socio-business environment and seeking sustainability and maximal impact of its activities, The Charity Foundation of IWC continues its transformation through applying best practices and processes-development work as well as improving the internal and external processes of work.
As an example of this, in 2016 the Charity Foundation adopted a new application procedure of funds allocation in order to respond more adequately to an increased amount of requests. At the same time the new procedure will be another step towards reinforcing the trust and good standing which our organisation has built over more than two decades.
In 2015, the Charity team has laid another important foundation – a partnership between the IWC-Sofia and the State Agency for Child Protection. The two organisations decided to collaborate on project monitoring and accurate information exchange.
The IWC Charity Foundation continues to be a preferred and reliable partner, thanks to its financial transparency and its sustainability.
On the behalf of the IWC Charity Foundation I would like to thank you for your generous support!
Together we can help good causes grow!
Maria Ilieva, MBA, Charity Chairperson 2012-2016
