We are doing good in KB
We enjoy helping. This is why our employees can enjoy one day off each year to take part in various voluntary activities.

CURRENTLY SUPPORTED PROJECTS

Let’s clean the Czech Republic

For the second year in a row, we are supporting this initiative, not only financially, but mainly with our effort. We are cleaning up in various parts of our country. For example, about 250 employees removed garbage in more than 20 locations throughout the Czech Republic. More than 100 employees registered for the first spring round and we also expect similar participation in autumn.

Blood donations

Blood donations represent one of the most popular voluntary activities, with employees of the entire KB financial group being involved. In 2018, we donated 57 litres of blood together.

Planting trees

In KB, we are well aware of our impact on the environment. In order to compensate our consumption of paper, we planted nearly 1,000 trees in a location close to Český Šternberk. The event was a joint project of KB and our logistics partner Office Depot.

Educational activities

We have become a main partner to the Global Money Week international initiative, the objective of which is to combat poverty, promote financial literacy, and raise awareness in the area of financial prosperity. This year’s theme was “Learn. Save. Earn.” Ten KB employees took part in several lectures, sharing their knowledge in an appealing manner with children and youth.

Moreover, we are a partner to the International Economics Olympiad, which aims to raise awareness and knowledge of secondary school students in the area of economics and finance. After all, young people with background in finance and economic indicators are less prone to debt problems – and this is one of our long-term goals.

Contributions to the Jistota Foundation

Throughout the year, we organize various events, the proceeds of which go to our Jistota Foundation. It then allocates the funds to people in need – children, seniors, and disabled persons. The most popular activities include the annual breakfast for the foundation, charity floorball tournament, auction of photographs, and clothes drive. Last year, our employees collected more than CZK 500,000.

Charity Golf Tournament: We organize a charity golf tournament each year, with last year’s proceeds totalling to CZK 180,000.

Czech Bikes for Gambian Schools – We took part in the collection of old bicycles for Gambian children, thereby facilitating their school travel. During last year, our colleagues contributed more than 80 bicycles.
