The Downside Up Foundation was among the winners of the largest Anti-crisis Competition "New dimension" of the charity program "Effective philanthropy" of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation.
The funds, allocated by the Potanin Foundation to support the organization, will allow the Downside Up Foundation in a crisis situation not to reduce the amount of assistance provided to families raising people with down syndrome today, and to build its activities in the long term. The grant will be used to pay for the work of the Foundation's experts, provide services to families, train specialists, and train employees.
In total, 56 NCO from 15 regions of Russia received grants. The winners of the competition were organizations that have been working directly with vulnerable categories of citizens for many years and acting as a resource center for colleagues in the shop.
"The choice made by the expert Council was very difficult – we were approached by many organizations whose reputation speaks for itself, and the best competed with the best. It is worth noting that the organizations that won the competition are distinguished by the highest professionalism – in times of crisis, they do not stop planning their future and expanding their activities. Thanks to this work and the desire for development, thousands of people receive timely assistance" says Oksana Oracheva, General Director of the Potanin Foundation.
