Since the beginning we worked with Romanian no-for-profit organizations that have a strong record and solid background when it comes to the projects they started in the home country. Declic was the first one, followed by Via Trasilvanica / Tasuleasa Social.
The following non-for-profit organizations are the ones that inspire us and the ones we support. Some of them have joined the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
Teach for Romania
* 12.05.2019 - VIA TRANSILVANICA
Romanian United Fund raised over $100,000 from the Romanian community in Chicago and throughout the United States. Alin Useriu was our guest and talked about his dream of building an "El Camino" of Romania.
Started 6 years ago, the now world-spread event honoring Romanian culture and traditions has since become known and beloved all around the globe, in Romanian communities and beyond.
Romanian United Fund was a sponsor, financially supporting the event that brought together the Romanian community.
Many thanks to the Romanian-American Consul General for his continued patronage of these events, Authentic Society for Language and Romanian Culture for making the gathering possible and Alianţa Washington DC for bringing in our midst the historical photo exhibit of Regina Maria - Queen Marie of Romania
* 05.02.2019 - DECLIC & MIRCEA BRAVO - Asa a zis bunica
Our first event and the launch of the Romanian United Fund took place on May 2nd, 2019 in Chicago. Our first project, the one we introduced to our guests, was a video produced by Mircea Bravo. We created a gofundme campaign and raised money ($8,200 t be more exact) to finance the video in which the known Romanian comedian talks about the importance of going out to vote. The video had over 1M views in less than 24 hours and reached 5M a week later.
