Plauen Civic Foundation – 2020 Projects

This year everything is different - including the handing over of the check to the associations that receive support from the Plauen Community Foundation. In recent years, the handover always took place on the stage at the Altmarkt at the Plauen Top Festival. This year there was no top party due to the corona pandemic and so the handover of the check was moved to the foyer of M & S Umweltprojekt GmbH.

The Plauen community donated an amount of 13,403 euros for the projects submitted. As every year, the community foundation did not find it easy to select projects. In the end, eight projects were selected that once again show how much passion the clubs put into their work for the people in the city and for the city. You can only thank all volunteers again and again for their commitment.

About 30 clubs applied. The members of the Community Foundation chose 17 projects from the applications. The selection is based on a study of project proposals and following discussions with the clubs. All clubs came to speak with the community foundation, to present their projects and answer questions. A complex procedure for the honorary foundation representatives, however, they got a good insight into the activities of the clubs and their project proposals. This year, 26,057 Euros were awarded, much to the pleasure of Plauener clubs from the fields of education, sports, social, art / culture and nature / education.
