Your preferred organization will have to work through and with one of our existing trusted community partners.
If you have very specific needs that need to be met, you will need to contact us (on Facebook) and explain the situation. Most requests (gloves, shields, masks) can be accommodated through one of our existing funds/partners (e.g. MagiCAMP). We can get you in contact with them.
However, there have also been some very successful fundraisers that raised money for a specific cause (tests, ventilators, triage tents, etc.). We will consider your request on a case-by-case basis and get you in contact with one of our partners, and they may be able to work with you to fundraise for your specific needs. "Caravana cu Medici" has been connecting us with other nonprofits so far, and they have been very accommodating. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to raise money for a specific cause. We are only authorized to work with our existing partners and it will be their call.
Disclaimer: Romanian United Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, limited by US laws, and we are acting internationally, which means we have other limitations related to compliance, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism. As such, we can only work with a limited set of partners. All funds raised by RUF will be directed to Romania through one of our partners, verified NGOs, based on existing contracts.
