The Foundation conducts the Fair of social ideas and projects since 2005. It is an exhibition and presentation of the ideas of non-profit organizations, among which the best projects are selected.
The competitive committee determines the number of winners and the amount of funding for the project individually, depending on the characteristics of the project.
The fair is also an educational platform for representatives of NGOs and social entrepreneurs.

Every year the topical subject and the nominations of the fair are determined in the field of education, health and support for vulnerable groups.
