KB’s Foundation, Nadace KB Jistota, has launched its new website at www.nadacejistota.cz. Its purpose is to present the Foundation and its activities, and also to provide complete information to applicants for grants and to partners who want to contribute to the Foundation’s activity. The independent website replaces the section that the Foundation has had on KB’s website at www.kb.cz.

CSR is an inseparable part of Komerční banka’s strategy. This is one of the reasons why as many as 18 years ago KB established Nadace KB Jistota, which has long been among the top ten of the largest corporate foundations in the Czech Republic. Over the time of its existence the Foundation has distributed more than CZK 120 million to needy recipients.

“Until now, Nadace KB Jistota has been providing information about its activity on Komerční banka’s central website. However, the scope of its activities and the amount of the funds that it distributes deserve the Foundation’s own independent website. Applicants for grants and potential partners of the Foundation will now find the information that they need faster, and more clearly arranged,” said Jaroslav Říšský, Chairman of the Nadace KB Jistota Board of Trustees.

Funds from the Foundation’s budget go to the health and welfare area, development of the civil society, and education. The most important projects in which Nadace KB Jistota participates include the opening of about 20 baby boxes, co-operation with Sdružení SOS dětských vesniček [an association of SOS children’s villages], and the currently running project, CERTAINTY with LINET, the purpose of which is to help provide hospices and homes for seniors with high-quality adjustable beds. The Foundation has been cooperating with hospitals, kindergartens and individuals who are in a difficult situation and need help, for a long time.

The Foundation worked with  FG Forrest, a.s., an internet agency founded in 1996, on the new website. It could therefore draw on long-standing experience when it created the website for the Foundation.

On the new website, visitors can find information about the Foundation, including its annual reports. The website offers a specific overview of the areas in which the Foundation helps and its long-term partners.
