Annual distribution ceremony
Linklaters hosts the 2016 Handover Ceremony
On June 23, the associations, whose project has been selected by the UFB Allocations Committee, were invited for the annual handover ceremony held within the magnificent premises of Linklaters.
More than € 700.000 were distributed to 86 Belgian charities, at least symbolically. Indeed, according to the UFB operating rules, the actual payment takes place once the investment is completed and is based on the invoices related to the project.
Paul Van Hooghten, Partner at Linklaters, explained to the audience what Linklaters’ social responsibility policy is and the reasons for its involvement with UFB.
Two associations, ‘Infirmiers de rue’ (Brussels) and ‘Leuven Bears’ (Leuven), presented themselves and described their respective project supported by UFB.
This event is also an excellent networking opportunity for the associations. It is an occasion for them to exchange and meet other associations and donors, and for some donors to meet the charities they support via UFB.
