We support the non-profit sector and strive to give back to society.
On our journey, Czech society has provided us with many opportunities, a high-quality education, and an environment conducive to doing business freely. We seek to provide the same for future generations, envisioning the Czech Republic as a country driven by technology, smart and educated people, and equal opportunities. We reject the notion that the Czech Republic is simply an assembly house for Europe and we are against clientelism and populism.
Rather than supporting the Giving Pledge, which concentrates philanthropy to later stages of an individual's life, we have chosen to support the non-profit sector now. Each year, we allocate a percentage of the value of our portfolio to the non-profit sector. In 2020, we donated CZK 50 million, and our vision is to gradually increase our support for philanthropic activities to hundreds of millions of CZK annually.
In addition to capital, we also dedicate our time to non-profit activities. We help NGOs operate strategically and systematically, setting measurable goals, choosing the right strategy, and securing enough finances for execution.
We do not finance projects related to gambling, tobacco products, alcohol, or consumer lending.
It is an honor for us to motivate other successful entrepreneurs to support positive changes within our society and create a better country for all.
An educated society is a prosperous society. We need people with the ability to think critically, search for information and perceive the world in context. Therefore, we support the following organizations:
Jeden svět na školách
We aim to assist the organization with marketing so that their high-quality educational programs can reach as many teachers, pupils, and students as possible.
We were involved in the creation of their project to provide university scholarships for the Romani, which we have been financing for several years, jointly with the Albatros Foundation. We are honored to support future Romani role models.
The OECD recommends that 40% of all pedagogical teaching be carried out practically. That's why we support Teachers Live, who have a functional teacher education program - bringing teachers with modern teaching practices to our education system.
English College in Prague
For almost 10 years, we have fully paid the tuition fee and pocket money for six children from low-income families or children's homes. Three scholarship holders went on to attend some of the world's most prestigious universities - Oxford, Cambridge, and the London School of Economics.
We support the research organization PAQ Research of Daniel Prokop, author of the book Blind Spots, which focuses on the analysis and recommendations in the field of education and social policy.
We help to preserve the tradition of Scouts and Junák. The Institute runs a social center and prepares a program for schools and Scout Groups.
Democracy and anti-corruption environment
A transparent, open environment is key to the future development of our country. We support organizations that follow democratic principles and help correct imperfect legislation. We are strong advocates of openness. The state should not keep anything secret except for matters that directly threaten security. The openness of the state apparatus will lead to greater public involvement, the discovery of many optimizations, and the creation of numerous business opportunities.
Rekonstrukce státu actively pushes for anti-corruption laws and standards to promote greater transparency. It reacts quickly to current events and draws attention to the risks of implemented political steps. Additionally, it monitors politicians' pre-election promises and their fulfillment.
Hlídač státu provides information on public administration activities, including the register of contracts, public procurement, overview of subsidies, insolvency register, overview of political party sponsors, K-index, or numbers of hospital beds available during the coronavirus epidemic.
Association for Liberal Democracy
The Association for Liberal Democracy was created to support the unification of democratic parties for the parliamentary elections in 2021. In the previous election, democratic parties required significantly more votes to win a single mandate compared to, for example, Hnutí ANO. The joint candidacy aims to address this inequality.
The Forum 2000 Foundation fulfills the legacy of Václav Havel by promoting democratic values and respect for human rights, developing civil society, and strengthening religious, cultural, and ethnic tolerance.
Česko.Digital is the largest civic-tech organization in Europe and a community of expert volunteers. It uses modern technology to connect non-profits, the public sector, and the government to improve the Czech Republic. Česko.Digital was founded in 2019 by Jakub Nešetřil, Radka Horáková, and Eva Pavlíková, and currently has over 5,700 volunteers. The organization's goal is to create a future in which technology helps people regardless of their social conditions, time, or place.
We support sustainable agriculture and the relationship between landowners and farmers with the aim of preserving quality soil for future generations. We strive to educate landowners to set conditions that make economic sense for farmers while motivating them to engage in long-term, quality soil management.
Nadace Živá půda
We created this association to support the unification of democratic parties for the parliamentary elections 2021. In the last elections, democratic parties needed significantly more votes to win a single mandate, compared to for example Hnutí ANO. The joint candidacy addresses this inequality.
We support activities that correct imperfect elements in our tax and legislative systems. We have long been convinced that it is necessary to reduce the taxation of labor and compensate for the tax shortfall by implementing a systemic, but fair taxation of capital. We strive to address the risk elements that affect the economically weakest segment of the population, which is also the most vulnerable to taxation. A typical example is our efforts to improve the rules for debt collection.
Člověk v tísni
We are the largest Czech donor to Člověk v tísni, supporting their activities aimed at mitigating the impact of foreclosures on socially deprived groups.
The Central European branch of the Aspen Institute aims to develop interdisciplinary cooperation, support Central European leaders from various sectors, and contribute to the analysis and resolution of pressing economic, social, and thought development issues on an expert and non-partisan basis.
Association for liberal democracy
Together, we are fighting for a fairer model of executions and insolvencies in the Czech Republic. With almost 1 million people in execution, we have one of the highest numbers in Europe, with over 4 million executions per million inhabitants, and multiple executions are unfortunately common. There is often no escape from executions, and a large part of the population is unable to even pay the interest and ends up in the grey economy. We are working to modify our execution law to be more similar to that of most European countries, allowing people in execution to return to normal life and re-enter the labor market without unduly burdening their employers.
