New digital fundraising platform for Community Chest Fund launched

President George Vella

As of Wednesday, donations can be made to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation online through a new digital platform – strinacrowdfunding.mt.

The new permanent digital platform was an initiative of the Malta Government Investments, seeking to make creative use of technology to raise funds for the foundation. The theme “every drop counts” was chosen for this year’s fundraising campaign.

At the launch of the new platform, President George Vella said that the Christmas spirit can be shown through solidarity, and thanked the companies that are already taking part in this platform. He appealed to the public’s generosity to ensure that the initiative is successful and that it can continue to thrive year after year, observing that there was no end to requests for assistance from the Community Chest Fund.

Economy Minister Silvio Schembri said that in light of his effort, an exercise was triggered to coordinate different initiatives by a number of entities in aid of the Community Chest Fund, and urged businesses to come up with more promotional initiatives in aid of L-Istrina.
