In May, during the festivities ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, I had the privilege of representing Rosland Capital to help raise funds for the Caudwell Children’s charity. In collaboration with the Keep Fighting Foundation, we donated a one-of-a-kind, 1-kilogram gold proof coin featuring the legendary Formula 1 driver, Michael Schumacher, whose fighting spirit inspired the establishment of the Keep Fighting Foundation.

Rosland Capital’s tradition of collaboration and giving back to the community

From the beginning, when I founded it in 2008, Rosland Capital has been committed to philanthropy and giving back to the community, especially those in need. During that time, we have collaborated with several passionate charities and organizations in our effort to make a positive impact on the world around us.

Among those organizations, Rosland Capital has maintained an ongoing relationship with Michael Schumacher’s Keep Fighting Foundation, a nonprofit initiative dedicated to promoting the idea of perseverance and resilience. In collaboration with our friends at Formula 1, we have produced a range of gold and silver coins featuring portraits of Mr. Schumacher. 

In addition to honoring Mr. Schumacher’s remarkable racing career, the sale of these coins directly benefits Keep Fighting and its many charitable projects. In this case, we were able to support Caudwell Children, a UK-based charity with a vision to support and transform the lives of disabled children and their families as “a safety net for families who are unable to gain the help they need.”

Alongside Mick Schumacher, trustee of the Keep Fighting Foundation, we donated a limited edition 1-kilogram gold proof coin featuring the legendary Formula 1 driver and humanitarian, Michael Schumacher, Mick’s father. The coin sold at auction for more than 100,000 euros at the U*NITE Fashion Show hosted by Amber Lounge in Monaco. 

The proceeds were donated to Caudwell Children to support its vision of helping disabled children and their families. We at Rosland Capital are proud to continue our tradition of collaborating with the Keep Fighting Foundation to raise money in honor of Michael Schumacher and his passion for inspiring and empowering young people. 

Again, we want to thank Mick Schumacher and the Keep Fighting Foundation, Formula 1, Caudwell Children, and the many other wonderful people who helped make this event possible and successful. We look forward to continuing this tradition in the very near future.

Rosland Capital Supports Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia

Rosland Capital and CEO Marin Aleksov recently participated in a fundraising event for Formula 1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia charity.

The event, held in Monaco to coincide with the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, featured a one-kilogram gold coin from Rosland, minted with Sir Jackie’s racing-era likeness and signature on the front and the classic Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side.

Only two of these coins will ever be minted. The first was auctioned in Monaco to benefit Race Against Dementia’s mission of finding better treatments, and an eventual cure, for dementia, which afflicts nearly 47 million people around the world today. The remaining coin, the last of its kind and a truly unique collectible, can be seen on Rosland’s website. It includes commemorative packaging, a certificate of authenticity signed by Sir Jackie Stewart, statements of fineness, weight, and proof, and a signature of the authorized Swiss assayer.

Rosland’s donated coin was won at auction by former Formula 1 driver Eddie Irvine, with all proceeds going to Race Against Dementia. All told, the Monaco event raised nearly $400,000 for the battle against dementia.

Appearing at the event alongside Sir Jackie, Marin Aleksov said:

“We’re passionate about supporting innovative charities and very excited to collaborate with Sir Jackie Stewart and Race Against Dementia to raise funds for a worthy cause. Sir Jackie Stewart is an icon of motorsport, with a lifetime of achievements; he has effectively used his profile away from the circuit to raise awareness for dementia research. There’s no better way to honour him than in gold, and no better place to auction this unique piece than in Monaco, the crown jewel of the Formula 1 World Championship. I would also like to thank Formula 1 for their support in this charity contribution; it’s fantastic when partners come together to support causes that are important to the Formula 1 community.”

Check out Race Against Dementia’s recap of the event, which includes a number of pictures of the auctioned coin, as well as photos of Marin Aleksov and Sir Jackie Stewart:

Rosland Capital Walks in Support of Chase Child Life Program at UCLA

 

Rosland Capital employees were in good spirits the morning of Sunday, April 30. Joined by CEO Marin Aleksov, they gathered at Wilson Plaza on UCLA’s campus bright and early for a special event, the Bruin Run/Walk.

In its 18th year, the annual event benefits Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Chase Child Life Program. Established in 1968, the program helps critically and chronically ill children and their families acclimate to the healthcare environment with the support from child life specialists.

Aleksov and his colleagues joined several hundred people from the community as they walked the 5k to raise money and awareness of the program.

In addition to participating in the run/walk, Rosland Capital was a sponsor of the event. In total, more than $75,000 was raised for the Chase Child Life Program.

Rosland Capital has supported UCLA in the past by partnering with UCLA’s Veteran Resource Office to provide education, wellness and financial resources for veteran students at the university.
