The Support for Regions grant program is aimed at supporting projects of public benefit. The submitted projects may relate to support for children and young people, health, social care, people with disabilities, science, education, culture, sport, or the environment. Applicants can be legal persons based in Czechia.
The Orange Playground grant application is aimed at supporting the construction and complete reconstruction of children's, sports, multi-purpose, and other playgrounds. The playgrounds are subject to public accessibility, with the exception of playgrounds at kindergartens and health and social facilities. The aim of the project is to motivate active leisure and maintain a healthy lifestyle at all ages.
The Nonprofits grant program is focused on developing and professionalizing nonprofit organizations that provide direct social care services. Organizations can apply for a foundation grant to improve the quality of care for staff, improve the quality of services and their expansion, and consolidate and raise the visibility of the organization's position in relation to clients, the public, and donors.
The Trees grant program is aimed at planting green areas in towns and villages and their vicinity. New alleys, noise and dust walls, windbreaks, and group plantings are created. Native tree species are planted, with old varieties, especially fruit trees, being a common choice. Professional gardeners, but also local citizens, volunteer firefighters, children from local kindergartens, and primary schools get involved in the planting. Families often “adopt” the trees and continue to take care of them.
The aim of the Orange Crossing grant program is to improve public safety by installing lighting at pedestrian crossings. The foundation contribution is intended for the installation of lighting for as yet unlit dangerous pedestrian crossings in the inner and outer suburbs.
The Employee Grants are aimed at supporting nonprofit organizations in Czechia in which CEZ Group employees actively participate in their free time. The most frequent applicants are sports clubs, volunteer firefighters, hobby groups, organizations caring for people with disabilities, and animal and environmental protection organizations.
GRANTING WISHES, THINKING OF OTHERS
The Granting Wishes charity project is aimed at supporting individuals who find themselves in a difficult life situation, particularly due to a serious illness or injury of themselves or a family member. CEZ Group employees recommend a specific person and then contribute any amount of money to the selected person in the days before Christmas. The ČEZ Foundation will double the collected amount.
2022 CRISIS AID
The Crisis Aid grant program is aimed at providing quick financial support in the event of natural disasters, accidents, pandemics, or other similar emergencies. The whole process of providing financial support is simplified and accelerated to the maximum extent possible in order to mitigate or eliminate the consequences of the situation as soon as possible.
Other Grant Programs and Projects of the ČEZ Foundation
Summer festivals, cultural events, sporting events—these are the traditional stops of the Orange Bike. The ČEZ Foundation allows interested members of the public to contribute to a good cause through their own physical efforts—specifically by riding on specially adapted trainer bikes. It only takes a little. Almost anyone—child, adult, or senior—can do 60 seconds on the trainer. The energy produced is converted into money going to selected nonprofit organizations.
The Orange Classroom project aims to help schools improve the quality of teaching physics and technical subjects. Elementary, secondary, or higher vocational schools whose students participate in CEZ Group's educational activities can receive a financial contribution to modernize their technical classrooms.
EPP—MOVE TO HELP
The EPP—Move to Help mobile app is a tool that allows the user to determine by their own active movement which projects and in what amount the ČEZ Foundation should financially support. The app records the user's movement and generates points in addition to the usual speed, time, pace, and distance data. The user can donate these points at any time to any of the currently offered projects of nonprofit organizations, schools, or municipalities.
