Our project would serve the to bolster FKA’s operation and to develop our work. Since last year our team has grown, as our colleague responsible for the supported projects began working 3 days per week, instead of 2, therefore the total amount of staff salaries is over 8 million HUFs. A crucial change in 2018 was that the pro bono support that we received for years in the form of our office space was discontinued, therefore we have to calculate with a rental fee of 720,000-1,080,000HUF for this year. We are envisaging 600,000HUF for the running costs, 500,000HUF for web development, 300,000HUF for organisational development. An additional plan is to increase the proportion of local donations and to ensure the sustainable operation of our NGO.
6. How do you plan to use the funds raised through Swimathon?
At this year’s Swimathon we would like to raise again at least 2 million HUF. The raised money will be a sort of “Fix Point”, i.e. a stable financial basis, and in the next year we will use it to cover operational expenses (professional staff, study visits, workshops, organisational costs of fundraising events, running costs, communication costs). The Foundation’s board will make a decision about how the funds raised for “Fix Point 2019” will be used, adhering to the principles of quality, independence and reliability.
