Corund begins construction on its addition to the Community Crafts Workshop

Our first round of crowdfunding for small community projects in Transylvania achieved 100% success. Thanks to our donors, we raised the needed matching funds to launch the projects listed below. All four projects were completed this summer! You can read about their accomplishments in the Stories section of our website.

 

Support the Unitarian Kaláka Fund!

A new phase of crowdfunding will begin this spring. You can help us keep our efforts going strong by donating to the Unitarian Kaláka Fund, which helps to support the operating costs of our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Those of us working on the Unitarian Kaláka initiative are volunteers. We have no paid staff; however, we do need to raise additional funds to cover the administrative costs incurred by our partners, SzKA, in Transylvania.

Please support our efforts by donating to the Unitarian Kaláka Fund!

We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization: EIN 94-3355574.
