Supporting young generation
Young people are full of ideas and energy inventing scores of surprising solutions. What they, however, need is to get the opportunity, support and trust to be able to materialise their ideas. This is exactly the reason for the establishment of the SmartUp program.
Providing technologies for community
The O2 Foundation as the corporate foundation of O2 Czech Republic supports discriminated groups and individuals through telecommunications technologies and services.
Since 2008, the O2 Foundation has been the major partner of the Seniors Line run by a charity organisation Elpida. Thanks to the O2 Foundation, the line 800 200 007 is available to seniors and people taking care of seniors free of charge each business day anytime from 8 am to 8 pm.
Engaging our employees
It is also thanks to the assistance of the O2 employees that the O2 Foundation is deploying its projects and programs. Our people offer their business and private time to various volunteering activities or contribute to the Foundation’s initiatives financially.
The O2 Foundation plays the role of mediator between non-profit organisations and the O2 employees. Employees provide their help through various team-building activities or in their leisure time over weekends. In 2013, more than 1,000 employees joined volunteering activities dedicating over 900 hours of their time.
The O2 Foundation organises periodical financial collections. Employees can set periodical deduction of contributions from their salaries to be sent to various O2 Foundation activities or they can contribute individually in the event of one-off emergency events.
Our employees help most during nature disasters as we could see in 2013 during the floods in which more than 100 employees raised through the O2 Foundation the amount of CZK 1,260, 413. The O2 Foundation then doubled the collected amount.
