On October 22, Rozália Csáki held a training session on this topic for representatives of NGOs from Miercurea Ciuc. Most of the 20 participating NGO representatives had no experience in this field. From association membership fees to fundraising events and writing applications, several fundraising opportunities and methods were discussed. Very valuable conversations took place in the context of sharing experiences.
The training is part of the project called Civil Triangle for Community Philanthropy. This project aims to transfer the experience and knowledge of the Odorheiu Secuiesc Community Foundation, gathered over 15 years, to the House Association in Miercurea Ciuc and the Atelier Association in Gheorgheni, as well as to NGOs operating in the three regions.

The aim of the project in four priority areas is: organisational development, launching of a crowdfunding platform, organisation of fundraising sport events in the three regions, training organised for NGOs in the three regions on alternative fundraising. The total value of the project is EUR 107,135, of which the total amount of funding is EUR 99,935 and the amount of own contribution is EUR 7,200.
