The PUSZKE Foundation was created at the initiative of several people as a response to the social needs of the Jewish community.
We raise funds for direct help for children and families, for activities that integrate our community: summer and winter trips, sports camps, Makabiads or extra-curricular classes for gifted children and for those that require more care.
For the last 25 years, international Jewish organizations have been sending funds to Poland. Thanks to them, our community has been reborn. We believe that, after years of benefiting from the charity of others, it’s time to start a new chapter.
In order to survive and flourish the Jewish community ought to be self-sufficient and well-organized.
We must remember what cedaka is and what it means to be responsible for the members of our community.
That’s why we’re asking you for support.
We want to be together, we want to give this opportunity to our children. The only way to do this, is to develop a community support system.
We are asking you to set a standing order on your bank account: a transfer of 10, 15 or 20 PLN! Do not be ashamed to pay even the smallest amounts – multiplied by many, they will allow us to implement assistance initiatives that will make a big difference. Do not be ashamed to pay big sums, either.
“If I am not for myself, who is for me?
And if I am only for myself, what am I?
And if not now, when?”
