54 421 EUR collected for the Alliance against Corruption

Apr 16
On December 5th, 2017 AmCham Latvia decided to support the Alliance against Corruption in Latvia (Alliance), initiated by Transparency International Latvia/Delna. At that time, there was already substantial support for the Alliance from members of civil society and the law enforcement agencies of Latvia. They could begin the process of securing the financial base of the Alliance and they are gareful AmCham for being among the very first on board from the business community.


The goal is to raise 60 000 EUR by April 30th and 126 000 EUR by mid-June. In early December, when they presented the concept to the Board of AmCham, 7000 EUR had been subscribed. Today (April 16th) the sum stands at 54 421 euro, of which 6500 EUR have been contributed by 3 members of AmCham.

The Alliance respectfully request other members of AmCham to join their colleagues, so that together they achieve the April 30th goal of 60 000 euro and 126 000 by mid-June.

Regarding recent developments, they are now actively seeking someone to head up the Alliance and begin implementing its plans; they are also actively participating in developing the Whistleblower Legislation, which has finally reached the committee stage of the Saeima; and the OECD has expressed interest in the Alliance.

Please consider supporting the Alliance in one of the sponsorship categories below:

Supporter (EUR 250) - Champion (EUR 500) - Patron (EUR 1000) - Grand Patron (EUR 2000)
