2% – I have a friend with autism.

About the project

In 2014, the “2% Campaign” aims to help children in need who suffer from autism, down syndrome and other associated diseases. The money raised will be used to ensure they receive the proper care they need, and to support the activity of the two regional associations supporting this cause, “Trebuie!” (Sebes) and “Copiii de Cristal” (Brasov).
Through this project, the Kronospan Foundation aims to raise awareness of this disease by serving the most urgent needs of the autism community in Romania. Moreover, our goal is to enrich the lives of people with autism through adequate therapy, education and the understanding of their respective communities.

2013 – “A City, a New Concert Hall, a Piano” Campaign

Starting with the 2013-2014 season, the Brasov Philharmonic Orchestra opened their new concert hall. However, for the performances to take place in the best conditions the Orchestra needed a new concert piano in order to complete the story they delighted us with for over a century now.
The Kronospan Foundation decided to support the Brasov Philharmonic Orchestra through the acquisition of a new piano. The first step was the 2% campaign, which helped partially raise the amount needed for purchasing the piano.
Throughout the year the Foundation ran a media campaign which was meant to familiarize the local community to the cause and to educate them on the cultural importance of having a professional orchestra in the city. After purchasing the new piano for the Philharmonic Orchestra, the old one was donated to the School of Music in Brasov, putting it to good use by supporting the future generation of talented artists.

2012 – “2% for Our Children” Campaign

In 2012, the Kronospan Foundation identified an urgent need to support the local children’s Hospitals of Brasov and Sebes. All the Foundation’s efforts were concentrated on acquiring new medical equipment for them, providing them with the adequate tools to treat their young sick patients.
In cooperation with the medical staff of the hospitals it was concluded that the purchase of an echocardiograph for Brasov and an ultrasound machine for Sebes were of utmost priority.
The Foundation’s fund raising campaign was based on online and offline media supports that covered all information sources (TV, Radio, local press, flyers, posters etc.). This allowed for a coverage of a large sample of population and in the end lead to a successful completion of the project.
