They proposed to gather 300 donor-founders and gathered 301. In 2011, the foundation was legally established, and the mission with which the team started was to invest time and resources to create a community in which people of Bucharest feel like home. The first year was about the Auerbach Fund, in which a newly married couple wanted to donate the wedding gift to the foundation; about YouthBank, a program that provides young people with a framework to work and make decisions about their community, or about funds that support young people and children in education or health. The year 2012 brought to Bucharest the Mega Image for the Community Fund and the first edition of Swimathon Bucharest - the first fundraising event by swimming through which the foundation supported 20 small and large organizations to raise money from 550 donors.
