Charity Activity

 

 

 

DESA Unicum, as the only company on the Polish art market, is professionally involved in Pro Bono activities on a very large scale, organizing or conducting charity auctions. Over the last 19 years, DESA Unicum employees have prepared or implemented over 100 such auctions. These were both cyclical and one-off events.

We are proud to support philanthropic initiatives, believing that our activities can provide an opportunity to change the quality of life for those in need. We want our actions to change something in the world - we feel that our commitment has a real impact on the people we help. We feel great satisfaction that what we do can provide someone joy and hope. And the fact that everything happens through art gives an additional, symbolic meaning.


DESA Unicum cooperates with the largest and most recognizable foundations and associations, but also devotes a lot of attention to smaller organizations, helping them collect funds for statutory purposes. In the last 19 years, thanks to auctions organized and run by DESA Unicum, over PLN 51,7 million have been transferred to various foundation's accounts.

Employees of DESA Unicum engage in collaboration with foundations by coordinating activities around auctions – starting from acquiring items, creating auction catalogs, storing artworks earmarked for auction, to conducting and settling the financial aspects of the auctions. DESA Unicum's involvement doesn't end with the final gavel strike at the auction; on the contrary, we continuously work in this regard throughout the year, and the auction itself is the culmination and inspiration for further action. The experience gained during charity auctions allows us to become even more deeply involved in new projects. 

 

DESA Unicum does not charge any commission on sold artworks during charity projects, and foundations are not burdened with any costs related to the work of DESA Unicum employees involved in the project. When organizing charity auctions, we do not charge buyers a standard auction fee added to the winning bid. As a market leader, we believe that our know-how is very helpful in optimizing the results of charity auctions.

 

In the coming years, DESA Unicum plans to intensify its pro bono activities to be able to provide even more effective assistance to those in need.
