Shortly after the publication of CCI, our initiative received a lot of coverage during the first wave of the epidemic, including an article published by MOME. All the donation we measured are listed in a table on the CCI webpage where we have analysed specific donations in several previous articles. In this final post, we highlight some of the major 2021 donations.
After the success of TV2 Group’s 2020 CSR Hungary award-winning charity gala evening Neked énekelek, was held again at the end of May 2021.
In 2021, the fundraising gala was organised on Children’s Day the 30th of May as the proceeds were donated to the orphans of the coronavirus. Among the performers, we could listen to many national stars, such as Charlie Horváth, who sang together with Vera Tóth, but we could also mention the duet of Bea Palya and Ferenc Molnár “Caramel” from the evening. There were also several performances that were specially created for this television show. In the end, a total of HUF 101 824 210 was donated to children in need during the gala event.
In terms of tax donations, this year has also seen health workers receiving special support for their efforts during the epidemic. Out of all the 1% of tax offerings in 2021 paramedics and more specifically the National Ambulance Service Foundation received the most amount. Thanks to the awareness campaigns launched since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic, they received HUF 308 million in 2021. This is a significant increase compared to the years before the coronavirus epidemic (2019), when ambulance services received only HUF 121 million, less than half of the most recent amount.
More and more donation sites have been set up, such as Budapest’s donation brokerage site, which aims to reduce the challenges posed by the new type of coronavirus epidemic by getting donations to the right place. Donations of smart devices (laptops, notebooks, smartphones) and medical equipment for digital education are particularly welcome from companies or individuals. Donors can choose the district or institution where they want to send their donations.
It is clear from the graph below that the rate of donations shows a significant decline over time. Even so nearly half a billion HUF was donated and have been collected in the last six months via several charity campaigns. This brings the total donations to over HUF 17 billion since the launch of the Crowd Capital indicator.
