The Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation is among one of the largest domestic foundations. Since 2006, it has distributed over CZK 42 million toward more than 230 projects. It especially concentrates on supporting skills and initiatives from children and youth at the community level, the support of low-threshold youth clubs and increasing the quality of life for disadvantaged groups through communication technology. The new grant program ‘A Year Differently’ aims to connect the non-profit and commercial sectors. Through this program, the Vodafone Foundation will pay the yearly salaries of four professionals from the commercial sector with the most interesting projects to allow them to spend one year working for the non-profit of their choice.
