As you have already read on the NEF ‘13 Centuries of Bulgaria’ website, the Fund is creating a platform where anyone can propose a socially significant cause which, following the approval of the administrator, will be announced and appropriately presented.
The Chairman of the jury for the Novel of the Year Competition, Prof. Boyan Biolchev, a prominent writer and lecturer, was enthusiastic.
He stated: ‘I support the initiative of NEF ‘13 Centuries of Bulgaria’ to create a platform where people with clear views on culture and for culture can express their donative ideas. In the overall poor image of donation activities in our country, corroded by constant examples of PR or financial misappropriation, the National Fund appears as a reliable guarantor of the level of the donation initiative and subsequently of transparency in donation realisation and the monitoring of its implementation in accordance with the will of the donors; and, last but not least, a bridgehead for the stabilisation of cultural activities in our country.’
Since Art. 4 of the Law on NEF states that the Fund guarantees the fulfilment of the will of its donors, everyone who has given their support for a certain initiative can be confident that the procedure will be impeccably observed.
The credo of the future platform is expressed, not verbosely, but clearly and simply:
Anyone will be able to suggest a donation campaign for an idea with a widespread response for the benefit of society, to support someone else’s campaign—through a financial or material donation—or to enrol as a volunteer if it appeals to them.
We give the floor to the brightest minds of Bulgaria—scientists, teachers, artists.
The first of them was Prof. Boyan Biolchev, who suggested the following title:
‘Will of Donation’[„Дарителска воля“] Platform of NEF ‘13 Centuries of Bulgaria’.
Now it is your turn—if you have an idea for a title for the project, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are anticipating not only your ideas for a short, meaningful title (also understandable abroad) for the platform. We hope you will share your views on this new aspect of our activity and give us valuable advice.
