We are a non-profit organization established in 1998 exclusively for charitable purposes, including making of distributions to orphanages and foster care facilities for children and youth in the Republic of Poland, as well as to independent foster youth under 25 years of age when pursuing any form of education. We are planning to finance the items we pick from the prioritized list of needs provided by the facilities, in order to control how your money is used.
Effective June 30, 2019, we have raised and transferred funds in the amount of $107,800 to the following institutions: Franciscan Sisters of St. Mary’s Family, Our Home, Tanowo, Walbrzych, Pielgrzymowice, and Pope Pius XI Orphanages, Institution for Children with Special Needs in Bialka Tatrzanska, Silesian School in Suwalki, Foundation “Mirror of Dreams” in Warsaw, Growth Center in Katowice, as well as families with children in financial and health crisis.
Our goal this year is to exceed the $120,000 fund-raising mark; we can only get there with your help, so please donate as much as you can afford!
As a charitable association, our organization is exempted from a federal income tax under Section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and state franchise or income tax under the Section 23701d of the Revenue and Taxation Code. All contributions are tax deductible as provided in Section 170 of the IRC and Section 23701 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
