IWAThe International Women's Association of Bucharest
IWA is a volunteer-run nonprofit association, bringing people together since 1978. 

As a registered NGO, IWA welcomes donations to support its Charity Grants program. Donations of any amount or size are greatly appreciated. Below are a few ways you can help support. For more information please email  us.


One time or recurring monthly donations can be made to IWA via bank transfer. Our bank account details are:

Bank: Alpha Bank Romania
Account name: Asociaţia Internationala a Femeilor din Bucuresti  

IBAN accounts:

  • RON Account: RO15BUCU049959772511RO01
  • EURO Account: RO69BUCU049959772511EU01
  • USD Account: RO29BUCU049959772511US01
Please email us to let us know you've donated as we'd like to be able to thank you and issue the proper receipts.

If you are a Romanian taxpayer consider donating 2% of your income tax.


If you pay Romanian income tax, the law gives you the opportunity to direct 2% of your income tax towards the IWA Charity Account to be donated to our selected beneficiaries throughout the year.

The procedure is easy: you need to complete Form 230. Do not calculate the amount of your 2% tax donation – the Agenţia Naţională de Administrare Fiscală (ANAF) will do that for you. You must deliver the completed form to your local ANAF office by post or in person by March 15th. 

Please let us know if you support IWA, we'd love to say thank-you!

DONATE 20% PROFIT TAX or 0.5% of your TURN-OVER

The Sponsorship Law and the Tax Code allow companies subject to
profits tax to grant sponsorships to organizations from certain
areas (for example, charitable organizations) and to benefit from
tax incentives in certain conditions provided by the law. The
expense made with sponsorships is not a tax deductible expense,
but it may represent tax credit, that is, it may reduce the taxable
profit payable with the full amount of sponsorship offered.

Talk to your accountant about supporting IWA Charity with this option. Please contact us for any assistance required.


We also need your participation in our annual fundraiser, the Annual Multicultural Charity Christmas Bazaar. Held every December at RomExpo, the Bazaar is a wonderful day of shopping and eating and entertainment. Generous support from embassies, businesses and volunteers allows us all to come together to make a positive difference!
