Donation Programme

Through its donation program, the ČEPS Company is actively acknowledging its share of responsibility for the environment in which it operates. By supporting activities that would otherwise not get the chance to exist or would be severely restricted, the Company wants to build its position of a strong and reliable partner. There are two ways towards this position – helping others to develop and helping them overcome barriers. 

The Company aims to support in particular sporting activities of children and youth, culture and education, science and youth welfare. We would like to be the ones who open the door to these areas for children.
 
We prefer long-term partnerships, as we create our company donation conception systematically, giving it a lot of thought.  We insist on proper financial statements for each supported project, complemented with a final report on the utilization of the donation.

The main areas of our support are as follows:

1. Culture
