Annual fundraising ceremony

Kick Off 2016

A ceremony held on October 18, 2016, at the residence of the American Embassy, marked the offical launch of our 2016-2017 fundraising campaign. Our faithful donors were invited to pledge their continuing support to UFB.

As each year, a special charitable project was put in the spotlight. This year it was the turn of « De Wroeter » to present their field action as well as the specific project supported by UFB.

 

Sophie Wilmès, Federal Minister of budget, has explained the social input of the National Lotery and their faithful partnership with UFB: If the United Fund for Belgium has been a beneficiary for several years, first by receiving a sponsoring, then a subsidy, it is because its approach is consistent with our priorities: improvement of society through rigorous project selection.This year again, the Belgian National Lottery granted the Fund’s request, allowing it, to intervene in three projects having a social impact related to poverty, disability and social exclusion."

 

A big "thank you" goes to all those generous donors who were present that evening, but also to those who were unable to attend, and, of course, to the numerous donors who support us in many other ways.
