Women’s Bank’s volunteer network was chosen as the Fundraiser of the Year 2012.
Women’s Bank’s volunteer network was chosen as the Fundraiser of the Year 2012, when The Finnish Fundraising Association (VaLa ry) awarded Finnish fundraisers. The award was given in recognition of the work done by thousands of Women’s Bank volunteers.
”During the past year the Women’s Bank volunteers have organized events throughout 30 different localities in Finland, that have collected over hundreds of thousands in Euros for supporting women in developing countries”, states the reasoning for awarding Naisten Pankki.
“Women’s Bank is a network we would like to join, where you can fulfill yourself and make your life richer”, reads further on in the text.
“The attraction comes from good-humored, persistent every-day activism, which challenges traditional barriers at every step. Women’s Bank is growing and has come here to stay.”
The Finnish Fundraising Association (VaLa ry) acts as a co-operational network for non-governmental organizations in Finland. Women’s Bank participated in the Global Awards 2012- series as Outstanding Volunteer, through the recognition it had received.
