Each year the Organising Committee selects beneficiaries from among registered Lithuanian public institutions to support improvements in the lives of children, women, and the elderly without the means to help themselves.

We welcome applications for support from registered Lithuanian public institutions serving children, women, and the elderly, who have formed a close working partnership with the municipality for the purpose of addressing the particular hardships these groups face over the long term. Ideally, we would like to support projects which make a lasting contribution towards improvements in the lives of the disadvantaged and ill.


How to Apply for Support

The deadline for applications for the 2018 International Charity Christmas Bazaar has now passed (1st June 2018).

Applications have been received and reviewed by the Charity Sub-Committee who created a shortlist based on the published Selection Criteria.

Members of the Organising Committee visited potential beneficiaries in order to consider their applications in more detail. Applicants are contacted to inform them of whether their application has been successful.  Exact amounts of each donation will be determined only after the Bazaar – dependent on available funds.

If you have any question, please contact Irina Tuminiene, member of the Organising Committee responsible for Charity (e-mail: irina.tum@gmail.com).
