ADEPT is seeking further funding for this innovative project that is successfully giving equal emphasis to nature conservation and local prosperity.
Help us to continue our work.
Our work in the first 10 years has shown the value of being able to react immediately and flexibly to problems or opportunities as they emerge – be they in local development or policy areas. For this, corporate and private donations are an essential, very effective addition to more restricted institutional funding. If you are interested in supporting us in the future, please contact us or use one of the following options.
Fundatia ADEPT is registered with Justgiving.com, the UK’s leading online fundraising website, so you can donate and raise funds for us online.

Linked to your annual Romanian tax return, you have the opportunity to direct 2% of your taxes for nature conservation, and for protecting Romania’s precious traditional landscapes.
This kind of sponsorship does not mean that you are donating money, rather that you are redirecting to a non-profit organization part of the tax you have already paid to the state.
We ask that you consider directing this sum to support the activities of Fundatia ADEPT. You have until 15 May each year to complete and submit the form.
There are two possible methods of contribution - from salary income (Declaration 230) and from income from other sources (Declaration 200).
The forms that you need to complete for this simple process, and instructions, can be downloaded here:

Fundația ADEPT’s mission is to protect the High Nature Value Farmed Landscapes of Transylvania, working with and supporting the small-scale farming communities that created them.
Fundatia ADEPT is working in applied research in biodiversity conservation; working with farmers to help defend the long term survival of traditional small-scale communities; working with regional, local and central government to promote helpful policies; and working with other NGOs, community groups and the general public to spread the word about the social, cultural and biodiversity importance of these landscapes and their communities.
This is one of the last great European landscapes, a mosaic of rich habitats and rare animal and plant species including some of the finest wildflower-rich grasslands in Europe. The landscape is still a functioning ecology, man and nature in balance. This low-intensity sustainable agriculture is under threat, although it is increasingly relevant as a model in the world today. Only through the farmer and his continued management can this landscape be conserved.
