Ukrainian classical musicians support fund
REPORT FOR THE PERIOD 18.03 — 16.04
1. ACTIVITIES AND PROCESSES
Briefly on what the KCMD team did to ensure the effective operation of the Fund
1.1. FUNDRAISING: THE UNPLAYED CONCERT
Together with the team of the Unplayed Concert, KCMD organized a charity online concert of prominent Ukrainian classical musicians who left their homes due to the war.
We broadcasted the concert from the empty main stage of the Lviv National Philharmonic.
About 65% of the donations collected by the Fund during first two weeks took place on the day of the concert and in the next three days after.
THE UNPLAYED CONCERT STREAMING PARTNERS
We are grateful to each and every person who works in the organizations that became broadcasting partners of the charity concert:
1.2. FORMING THE FUND BOARD
To ensure that the Fund's decisions are balanced and applications are considered democratically, we have set up a board to evaluate applications and agree on assistance. We also have built the board's work processes.
We are grateful to each member of the working group for their willingness to invest their time in the work of the Foundation.
1.3. PROCESSES ADJUSTMENT
In the first days of the Foundation's existence, we dealt with, among other things, the following:
