Hennef, 25th October 2012. The need for additional financial support for social, therapeutic and integrative work is huge as the CONET competition for charitable funds showed again. Various local associations and groups applied for a share from the CONET donation fund, which has been increased to a total of 16.000 Euro in 2012. Whether it is about buying new therapy equipment or to rebuild the own premises without barriers or to obtain enough funds to finance the daily work most dedicated groups own funds are not nearly sufficient.

From the projects submitted CONET’s jury chose this year six beneficiaries:

“The diversity and the scope of the social engagement of the many groups and associations who have applied to us for a donation is very impressing“, says Rüdiger Zeyen, Chairman of the Board of CONET Technologies AG. To select the winners from the many applications is not easy for the jury, which consists of employees from all levels. „In the end, we are convinced to have selected projects which will bring forward Hennef and in the region Region,” adds Zeyen. This is the main goal of the CONET competition for charitable funds which has since become a traditional institution.
