The service is still in test mode. Philanthropists themselves took the initiative to create it.
More than one thousand transfers to charity were made by Muscovites using the online service launched on the portal of the Mayor and the Government of Moscow on October 16. You can now make a targeted donation on the mos.ru website in the section “My payments”… The initiative to create such an instrument was made by the benefactors themselves.
“As the first few weeks of the service have shown, it is convenient for Muscovites to make donations in parallel with paying for various services, such as utilities. There are three times more such transfers than independent donations. In total, the townspeople have already made over one thousand transfers. Their average amount is now more than 200 rubles, “- said
Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.
The city actively supports charitable organizations. This year they received over 300 million rubles, including 67.7 million rubles allocated to charitable projects as part of the Moscow Mayor’s grant competition for NGOs.
The new service is still in test mode. Individuals registered on mos.ru can make donations. Also, the collection of proposals for his work continues. They can be expressed by both charitable foundations and townspeople.
For example, there is an initiative to introduce automatically recurring payments. Thanks to them, the interaction of users with the service will become more convenient, since the donation amount does not have to be entered every time, it will be debited on time.
“Our organization initiated the creation of a new charity service. We are confident that he will help Muscovites to join charitable activities on a regular basis, ”said Olga Rustamova, executive director of an international charitable organization
Doctor Lisa’s Fair Help.
Charitable foundations and associations registered in Moscow (there are more than three thousand of them) can join the project. The list of partners will include only proven and proven organizations. On the site “Soulful Moscow”the foundations will regularly publish reports on where the funds are directed. In addition, all program participants will receive a mailing list with a detailed report on the funds raised, the number of users, the average payment amount and other important information.
“With such a service, our foundation acquires additional financial support, and even more people will learn about us and can tell others about it,” added Natalya Moskvitina, General Director of the Fund to Support Family, Motherhood and Childhood
“Women for Life”.
The idea of creating such a service was announced at a meeting between Sergei Sobyanin and volunteers, heads of charitable foundations and NGOs.
