This page has been created to provide updates and to answer any questions you may have regarding the Via Transilvanica fundraiser and our process.
How do I select my milestone?
These instructions are for new donors only (2021 and later).
THIS ONLY APPLIES TO YOU IF YOU DONATED IN 2021 OR LATER.
If your donation was for one milestone ($1,200 as of May 2022) or greater, you can select your milestone following the steps, to provide the 5 character code (LL DDD) for the milestone you'd like.
1. Access Via Transilvanica's site: https://viatransilvanica.com/traseu.
2. Browse the map to the desired location and search for grey milestones only.
3. Write down the code of the available milestone - ex. HR 016 - each label starts with 2 letters indicating the county, followed by 3 digits.
4. Fill out this form. We'll communicate with our VT contact and they will assign the milestone to you, assuming it is still available.
5. Within a week, you'll receive communication from us about the assignment.
When will I be able to choose the location of my milestone?
January 2022 Update: New donors - please check your donation confirmation email for instructions or see this page.
If you donated in Dec 2019 and have not used the voucher emailed to you in 2020 to choose your milestone, please contact us at [email protected] The current list of milestones can be checked on our Via Transilvanica Milestones page. If you made a donation as part of a group, please make sure you speak with your friends.
August 2020 Update: we have assigned milestone ids to every one of our donors. If you have purchased a milestone but have not yet received your voucher, please reach out as soon as possible, we are here to help. If you made a donation as part of a group, please make sure you speak with your friends and see if anyone else in the group has received/has been assigned your voucher.
I want a milestone too, can I still purchase one?
Yes, currently (early 2022), you can still purchase your own milestone. Your donation is tax-deductible if made through the Romanian United Fund.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, your donation is tax-deductible. Please check your donation confirmation email for details.
Do I get a tax-deductible receipt?
Yes. Please check your donation confirmation email.
If you donated during our Fundraiser even in Dec 2019, you should have received a receipt for your tax-deductible donation in early January 2020. If you have not received one, we may not have your proper contact information. Please email us at [email protected] with your contact information and we will promptly reply. Thank you
When will I have my milestone?
On Via Transilvanica's website, you should be able to view the location of your own milestone, if you donated during the Fundraiser event in Dec 2019 and you selected your milestone through the process that took place in 2020 OR if you donated later and communicated with us about your selection.
Depending on the location, you may already be able to "see" your milestone (if it's already been installed), or you may have to wait. The entire project (1,000 kilometers) was expected to be completed in the second part of 2021, however the trails are still in the process of getting adjusted.
Can I write my name on the actual milestone?
No, the names are not written on the milestone itself. Names will be listed on the "Donor's Walk", near Piatra Fantanele (Parcul National Calimani), in Bistrita. For each milestone purchased, there will be one large stone in the ground, that will have your names on. It's a very beautiful area, you will love it. Your name will also be listed on the phone application that will be delivered in the course of 2020. You will be able to "see" your milestone, and your name listed next to it on the app. You will also be able to write a little story about yourself, your family, or what inspired you to make a donation.
How many names can be written in stone on the Donor's Walk?
You can write up to 15 names for anyone stone (one for each milestone) and on the phone app that will be used to travel on Via Transilvanica.
Nobody has contacted me yet regarded my milestone, when should I expect your call?
