The Bulgarian Donor’s Forum announced its annual awards Biggest Corporate Donor 2013 on 11 November at a ceremony hosted by the President of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev. The awards give public recognition to companies that support public causes in a sustainable and transparent manner for an eight year. 

Tulip Foundation and UniCredit Bulbank received the award for Best Partnership between a business company and foundation for the project Trust in the Family. The award has been decided by the members of the BDF among 11 nominations in this category. 

Maria Petkova, director of Tulip Foundation and Levon Hampartzoumian, Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Chief Executive Officer of UniCredit Bulbank received the award. They expressed their satisfaction from a fruitful partnership that has started with the personal decision and vote of some 1000 employees of the bank, went through joint organisation of meetings, trainings and presentations that has reached the lives of thousands of people in five municipalities in Bulgaria.

Trust in the Family Programme is innovative for Bulgaria. An up-to-date democratic method for supporting children and families has been adapted and introduced in the frame of the activities – Family group conference. The model encourages participation and responsibility of the family. The implementation of the programme has a direct impact on early identification of children at risk of neglect of institutionalization, dropping out from school, violence etc. 

For a fourth successive year the Donor’s Forum praised an individual who has contributed to charity in Bulgaria. The award was given to Ivan Stancioff – a statesman, public figure and donor, founder and chair of the board of the first of its kind centre for children with disabilities Karin Dom.
