Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!
The Foundation supports the participation in summer camps of children from impoverished families or those subject to social risk, as well as that of children with special needs.
The objective of the “Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!” programme is to encourage the development and social integration of socially vulnerable children, providing support to children from poor and vulnerable families, their parents and children with long-term illnesses, as well as families at social risk throughout Latvia to attend developmental and education day and overnight camps. The Foundation may allocate part of the programme budget as it deems appropriate to activities that facilitate the attainment of the programme’s objectives.
Programme Target Audience
In accordance with the set procedures, the Foundation’s support may be applied for by societies, foundations, youth centres or other camp organisers registered in Latvia whose activity is not-for-profit. Commercial enterprises cannot apply for support.
Donations for the “Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!” programme are attracted throughout the year, specifying that the donation is intended for the Let’s Help Them to Grow Up programme in the payment objective. In addition, every year the Foundation organises a Christmas Charitable Campaign during which ABLV Charitable Foundation from its reserves adds at least one euro to each euro received during the campaign. During the Christmas Campaign, ABLV Bank employees, clients and members of the general public, who have received information about the campaign and wish to support it, are invited to make donations. Every quarter, the Foundation collates information about donations received, as well as the work done under the auspices of the programme, and publishes it in the section of its homepage: www.ablv.org devoted to the programme “Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!”.
In light of the fact that the Foundation has been awarded the status of a public benefit organisation, residents of the Republic of Latvia who make donations to the “Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!” programme are entitled to receive tax relief.
