The Rural Fund program has started in 2013. The OSCF tries to give the possibility for the NGOs from rural environment, to get financial help for their developments and programs.
The program’s goal is to support the development of rural civil society.
The fund is gathered through the Community Card program and the „With coins for the community” program. The OSCF is using this fund for donation. The topic can change every year.
This program’s grantmaking part happens once a year (in autumn). The Community Card users can vote for the projects in a specified period of time, but they also have to use their cards during this voting period. On these votes depend which projects of NGOs will be the winners.
Our most important supporters are the Merkúr – the Chain Stores of Szeklerland, the Pharmacy Réka, the Harmopan JSC, the Euro-Car Trading LTD, the Mátyus Dental Studio and the Petry Butcher Shop.
Until 2016 we have supported 14 projects with 36.196 lei. The goal in the future is to support rural civil societies every year.
