Our mission

Supporting young generation

SmartUp
Program for 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.

SmartUp program helps young people aged 15-26 eager to create or change things and help the community they live in make their dreams come true. The program gives these young people the desired support, funds, team mentoring and education needed for the materialisation of their projects including the telecommunications equipment.

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 1994, the O2 Foundation has been the general partner of the Safety Line Community operating the only anonymous crisis telephone line for children in this country. Thanks to the O2 Foundation, children can call number 116 111 free of charge for 24 hours a day.

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.
