Empowering the Luxembourg non-profit scene

As every year, ING's objective is to support and promote the Luxembourg non-profit sector, which often still lacks the funds and resources to achieve its objectives, despite the remarkable work they are carrying out.

Simplifying the contest 

The contest, which in previous years included an online vote, has now been simplified. This year, a jury of 7 people determined the most convincing projects in the following three categories. 

“Humanitarian aid”: humanitarian projects aimed at improving people’s quality of life or ensuring that human rights are respected;

“Integration”: projects intended to promote adaptation, inclusion or the promotion of social links between individuals;

“Other”: any project for the benefit of others in areas other than humanitarian aid or integration. 

23 organisations in total came on stage and were handed prizes of 1,000, 2,000 or even 4,000 euros.

List of winners in each category:
