AWCD 2016-2017 Charitable Efforts

For expats living in Europe, opportunities for meaningful philanthropic activities can be hard to find.  A myriad of cultural, social, economic and political differences render obsolete much of the charitable work that many of us find so rewarding, and necessary, in our home countries.  

We are good at raising money and awareness for causes that speak to our hearts.  We know how to collect clothes and books and toys and food for those in need.  We want to help.  We just don’t know where to go or what to do.  That’s where the AWCD comes in.

The AWCD has identified specific organizations whose needs and missions correspond with the goals of our membership. This year, consistent with our focus on helping improve the lives of women and children, the membership chose KinderschutzAmbulanz to be the sole recipient of the money raised.

To date we have raised:

  • AWCD Charity Dragon Boat Race -  €1415


While we have designated KinderschutzAmbulanz as the recipient of our current fundraising efforts, we are also committed to other worthy organizations and support them by conducting food drives, clothing drives, book sales and toy drives.  For more information about these charities, please click here.

Although the AWCD has a long history of outreach with many of our charities, new charity recommendations often come directly from our members. It is our membership body who decides each year who will be the sole recipient of our fundraising efforts.
