United Against COVID Fund - Round 2 Results

The Fund received nearly 700 applications; 106 of them are being funded

Eight hospitals, 13 nongovernmental organizations, and three municipalities are among the applicants who received funding from the United against COVID-19 Fund in the second and final call for proposals. If more funds are raised, the Fund will be able to support more of the submitted proposals. Thirty-two projects were approved and will receive a total of 287,509 levs in the second round. The maximum amount allocated per organization, as in the first round, is 10,000 levs.

In its two rounds, the Fund supported a total of 106 organizations all over Bulgaria—hospitals and other medical entities, NGOs, municipalities, community centers, as well as social initiatives of micro and small enterprises. The funding of 961,493 levs will be used to purchase medical and personal protective equipment for healthcare professionals tending to coronavirus patients, as well as food, medicines, and protective equipment for the elderly, the sick, children, unemployed, disadvantaged, and other vulnerable groups.

The United against COVID-19 Fund was created on the initiative of the Bulgarian Donors’ Forum, America for Bulgaria Foundation, US Embassy in Bulgaria, and American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria to support local communities in the country severely affected by the coronavirus crisis.

The Fund received a total of 693 applications in two weeks. Most of them (303) were from NGOs, followed by 110 municipalities and 100 community centers. Fifty-five hospitals and 26 medical institutions also applied. Most applicants were based in small cities. One hundred organizations proposed activities with regional and national coverage.

The full of lists of approved projects from both rounds can be seen here: Round 1 and Round 2.
