Grant Programme

Our company has created a grant programme to support the region and municipality development in those areas where it operates. Support provided to regions promotes the development of civil society and friendly relations between neighbors. Our company is thus committed to the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR).

In 2023, we received a total of 39 applications for financial contribution, of which 21 projects were selected for which a total of CZK 3,035,000 was allocated.

Under the grant programme, our company plans to give up to 3 million CZK in 2024. The highest amount to be provided to one applicant is 250 000 CZK, the lowest amount is 10 000 CZK. Financial support can be provided to projects in any field. However, those projects that focus on the development of areas adjacent to our company's operations have an advantage over other projects in the evaluation. Activities focusing on young people and families with children are supported primarily.

Requirements for Receiving the Grant

Requests for the grant are evaluated periodical up to the planned amount. Each project is assessed on the basis of given criteria and is evaluated accordingly.

2. Degree of impact on its neighbourhood

It is our priority that financial support provided under the grants is used cost-efficiently and brings benefits to as many people as possible.

3. Benefit of the grant

Our company wants people to benefit as much as possible from projects it had supported. Thus it prefers applications that improve life standards and quality and help people who live in the areas in which the company operates. Project benefits are assessed individually, on the basis of subjective evaluation.

Example:

The project for the construction of a playground in the municipality has a greater chance of success under this criterion than the project to carry out a study on whether residents would like a new playground.

4. Applicant’s activity

Applicants who are willing to participate in the project will be given preference in application evaluation. It is not only financial participation we have in mind. Our company wants people to get actively involved into the project implementation.
