The Foundation in figures

Over its eight years in existence (2009-2016), the Foundation has donated CZK 533 million for projects, primarily in the field of education.

The Foundation supports approximately one half of Open Gate students; 96 of them received grants in school year 2017/2018, totaling about CZK 40 million. Our grantees include 9 students from children’s homes, and 12 from foster care, and the rest of grantees come from families whose socio-economic status would have prevented them from providing their children with good educations matching the children’s talents and determination to learn.

The Foundation donated CZK 7.45 million for the Universities project in 2016. In the 2017/2018 academic year, 60 students have received grants. The grantees under this program study at, for example, the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford and other schools in the U.K., the U.S., the Czech Republic and also the Netherlands, Japan or France.

Support under the Helping Schools Succeed project benefits some 765 teachers from public elementary schools and, through them, more than 8,400 students, in cooperation with dozens of experts from various fields and specializations. The Foundation supported this project to the tune of CZK 36.7 million in 2016.

The Science project distributed a total of CZK 38 million over five years (2013 - 2016) to 3 research teams.
