KB for good cause
At KB we like to help, and so our employees have one free day per year for their volunteering activities

WE CURRENTLY SUPPORT

Clean Up Czechia

Since 2018 we have been supporting this initiative not only financially but also through our effort. We are cleaning up across the country. In 2019, almost 300 employees signed up for the spring and autumn cleaning events under KB’s flag at 50 locations throughout the country.

Blood giving

One of the most popular volunteering activities is blood giving, in which the whole KB financial group’s employees are involved. In 2019, the blood giving was organised in KB’s premises in cooperation with Všeobecná fakultní nemocnice (General University Hospital) five times and 190 employees of KB and its subsidiaries donated their blood. 

Tree planting

At KB we are aware of our environmental impacts and so we have returned almost 1,000 trees to the nature for our consumption of paper. A site near Český Šternberk was selected for planting. The event was a joint project of KB and our logistics partner, Office Depot.

Educational activities

KB became the Main Partner of the Global Money Week international project. Its purpose is to combat poverty, promote financial literacy and raise awareness of financial well-being. This year’s campaign was titled Learn. Save. Earn. Ten of our employees joined it to deliver lectures and convey their knowledge to children and young people in an interesting way.

KB is also the General Partner of the Economic Olympiad, the purpose of which is to raise secondary school students’ awareness and knowledge of economics and finances. Young people educated in finance and knowledgeable of economic indicators are less liable to debt problems, and this is one of our long-term objectives.

Help to the Jistota Foundation

Throughout the year we organise various events, the yields from which go to our Jistota Foundation. It distributes the funds to those who need them: children, seniors, and the disabled. The most popular activities include the yearly Breakfast for the Foundation, floorball tournament for charitable purposes, auctions of photographs, and collections of garments. Last year our employees raised more than CZK 500,000 between them.

Foundation golf Every year, we organise a golf tournament; it yielded CZK 180,000 last year.

Bikes for Africa We have joined the drive to collect old bikes for children in Gambia to support their journeys to schools. Last year, our colleagues contributed more than 80 bikes.
