Charity programs (contributions)

For 30 years, Philip Morris ČR a.s. has been contributing significantly to charitable projects across a wide range of organizations and specializations. In 2021, four principal areas of support were chosen: education; care for carers; chance for a quality life; and environmental issues. Moreover, again in 2021, our assistance was aimed at mitigating the consequences of disasters or efforts to prevent them, whether it was a coronavirus pandemic or a devastating tornado which hit southern Moravia in June 2021. Our traditional long-term partners, implementing their projects with our financial support, include, among others, the Slunce pro všechny Endowment Fund and the Livia and Václav Klaus Endowment Fund, in the field of projects focused on education. A remarkable program is the support of innovations in the development and use of alternative communication, implemented by the Regional Charity Červený Kostelec, organization with the only inpatient facility in the Czech Republic, caring for people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the Home of St. Joseph in Žireč City. Another important long-term partner is the Charter 77 Foundation, not only in supporting the elderly or the seriously ill people, but also in helping to prevent the spread of coronavirus and mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic that has afflicted the world for two years. In 2021, through an extraordinary fund established at the Charter 77 Foundation, we provided financial assistance in the total amount of CZK 4.6 million to six hospitals 24 throughout the Czech Republic. These hospitals used the donation to purchase personal protective equipment, necessary equipment (e.g., ozone generators, respiratory aids) or even to cover the raised personal costs. In the field of the environment, we have been cooperating with the POD HORAMI association for several years, which is focused on education of children in the field of environmental care. We have also provided our support to a new grantee, the BENEDIKTUS organization, to build a rainwater retention system in their gardens and orchards. We are very happy and proud that our support helps both at the national and local level, and thus we can contribute to better and more sustainable living conditions for many people.

In Slovakia, our charitable activities were focused on the areas of economic development, education and empowering women. Philip Morris Slovakia s.r.o. yearly organizes clothes collections for disadvantaged people across Slovakia and participates in the volunteering program “Our City” organized by the Pontis Foundation. In 2021, we participated in the World Cleanup Day initiative to clean our environment from litter. The company has supported several organizations across the country that develop programs supporting youth from minorities or from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Programs which support coworking for mothers were supported as well. Philip Morris Slovakia s.r.o. also focused on the continued support of communities, especially handicapped and homeless people. We also continued with the support related to COVID-19 by donating protective equipment. It was donated to National Oncological Institute due to the need of extra protection of patients in times of pandemic.
