Statement by “ Reduta Dobrego Imienia” regarding the alleged obtaining of funding from the “Narodowy Institut Wolnosci”(the National Freedom Institute).
At the end of April, the National Freedom Institute announced the results of a competition for funding under the so-called capital. On May 4, 2021 the TV station ,TVN 24 informed about the results of the competition and the beneficiaries of the project, the information can be found at the link: https://tvn24.pl/polska/pieniadze-z-narodowego-instytutu-wolnosci-gazeta-wyborcza-o-powiazaniu-beneficjentow-z- power-5084733
The authors of the above-mentioned publication indicate ( 3:03 minutes of the video) that the “Reduta Dobrego Imienia “Foundation, as part of the financing for 2021, is a beneficiary and received a grant from the National Freedom Institute. This information is false and misleads the public.
The National Freedom Institute is a valuable institution that supports civic society, but “Reduta Dobrego Imienia” has neither applied for nor received funding under the PROO project (Program for the Development of Civic Organizations) – Edition 2021 from the National Freedom Institute – emphasizes Maciej Świrski, President of “Reduta Dobrego Imienia”.
