Our International Fundraising Area has the purpose of building relationships with organizations and individuals abroad to obtain financial aid and spread the work that our Foundation carries out to help thousands of people who live beneath the poverty line in Argentina. .
This area focuses on:
Events Organization: Tzedaká Foundation organizes an annual event in New York that brings together over 200 Argentinean businesspeople and professionals who live in the USA as well as American citizens sensitive to social causes. The purpose of the event is to raise funds for our social programs in Argentina.
Besides enjoying cocktails and shows, guests participate in a silent auction of interesting items such as Argentine wines, soccer jerseys, vouchers for luncheons and stays at different restaurants and hotels in the USA and Argentina.
The Foundation’s Executive Board participates in this event which is organized by Friends of Tzedaká Foundation in New York.
Solidarity Ambassadors: Sensitive people who live abroad are invited to be social ambassadors for the Foundation, opening their homes for events related to festivities in which the work of the Foundation is communicated to guests and they are invited to contribute to support our social programs.
Washington, Boston, Londres, New York and other cities formed part of this initiative and we are looking to add more cities to spread our solidarity message.
If you have friends abroad who might want to participate, please call 5237-4000 ext. 227 or email us at [email protected]
