Charities and Causes

The BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy is a charity partner of the Heart Of Children Association, which helps children with heart conditions and contributes to the development of cardiac surgery in Romania. The tournament also supports the Dumbrava Minunată Foundation, established in 1991 by Ion Tiriac and a team of trained caregivers, which is dedicated to the well-being of vulnerable social groups.


In 2009, the Heart Of Children Association successfully campaigned for the establishment of a pediatric cardiac surgery centre at the Marie Curie Children’s Hospital in Bucharest – the first of its kind in the region. Through the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy, the Heart Of Children Association received a €10,000 ATP ACES For Charity grant in 2011 to help fund the establishment of a cardiac department for newborns.

The Dumbrava Minunată Foundation opened a residential complex in 1994 to provide social and medical care for orphans and abandoned children. In 2008, it extended its assistance to the elderly, providing critical speciliased care. It created The Poiana Soarelui Bakery – which now has a network of shops – with the purpose of providing financial revenues to support their social work.

The Foundation is currently focused on the project, “Let’s live with dignity; old age is not a burden”, which aims to improve the situation of marginalised seniors in Brasov by designing and promoting integrated social services. The BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy has been selected to receive a second €10,000 grant from ATP ACES in 2013, with funds to support the Dumbrava Minunată Foundation.
