The Foundation for the Multicultural Center was founded in December 2013 by a group of Warsaw organizations gathering migrants and working for migrants.
The Warsaw-based organization is probably the only organization in Poland that is created by other organizations working in field of migrations and multiculturalism. It supports actions for the comprehensive and subjective participation of foreigners, migrants, ethnic, national and cultural minorities in Warsaw, which is a shared concern of the foundation and its member organizations. Those actions refer to both historical and contemporary identity of the multicultural Poland and Warsaw.
The Foundations’ Council is a continuation of the informal coalition of NGOs - established in 2009 – that made various steps to establish the Multicultural Center in Warsaw.
The Council is open for organization (foundations, associations), informal groups, and in some justified cases natural persons, who share foundation’s aims and have the necessary experience and knowledge.
In order to join the Council, organization should:
1. Get accustomed with the Statute of the Foundation and the Council’s Rules,
2. Obtain recommendations from two of the present members of the Council (list)
On the admission of a new Council member decide other members of the Council; according to the Council’s Rules, the Council has right to ask the organization about providing all missing information.
