Kraków amongst most generous cities in Poland

Caring Cracovians are right up there with Warsaw and Katowice when it comes to giving to charity, with taxpayers chosing to donate millions of złoty to charities.

The city’s donations through the one per cent tax scheme put it third in all of Poland – with one charity – actress Anna Dymna‘s Mimo Wszystko, receiving 7.5 million zł in the past year. Others to have benefited from the charitable donation’s include the homelessness and poverty prevention organisation Dzieło Pomocy św. Ojca Pio (2.5 million zł), and the hospice Św. Łazarza (1.9 million zł).

Kraków’s Caritas branch also benefited, receiving 1.3 million złoty. Elsewhere in Małopolska, residents of Tarnów gave almost 2 million zł to Caritas.

Figures relating to donations through the one per cent tax scheme show that, across the region, church-backed organisations find most favour when it comes to charitable giving.
