359 BGN donation was received by the Public Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development from the visitors of the Green Revolution festival, which ended on 9 July in Varna. The funds were raised mainly from the fun, tasty and useful children’s burger workshop with chef Filip Spasov on the last festival day. Thank you to everyone who supported us!

Philanthropy is at the heart of authentic nonprofits. Advocacy for any public cause rests on two basic foundations – civic engagement and philanthropy. Community fundraising makes nonprofits independent in advocating for citizens and civil society. That’s why we at the Community Center for Environment and Sustainability rely on many small donations and proceeds from the sale of cause-related products. In this way, we can stay away from corporate donations that would put us in a situation of losing our civic face.

The money raised will be spent on some of our ongoing campaigns, which you can find on our website and support. Some of these we have started by implementing a specific project, but we are continuing after the donor funding ends. This is the path to “sustainability” – part of the name and mission of the organization.

Our participation in the Green Revolution Festival was made possible thanks to the invitation of the organizers of the event, the Bulgarian Street Food Association and the Street of Chefs. Thanks also to the environmental association “For the Earth”, who for the second year have supported the event through the project “Clim Act”.
