About projects that will be supported from money raised during 2016 Thanksgiving Ball´s Silent Auction:
NFNZ – The Endowment for Independent Journalism and the www.VsechnyZakazky.cz Project, a public procurement initiative focused on transparency, are teaming together to establish a grant to support systematic media coverage of public procurement. We are asking you to contribute to the grant that will help Czech reporters to highlight best practices in public procurement on local and municipal levels and devote their energies to serious issues in this area by way of investigative journalism. AmCham financially supported the creation of the www. VsechnyZakazky.cz online database for government procurement. www.nfnz.cz
LET’S GIVE CHILDREN A CHANCE help prepare young people from children’s homes for the start of their individual lives.
The aim of the scholarship program is to give as these children an opportunity to carry on with their studies so that they can attain qualifications that increase their chances on the job market and at the same time to strengthen the development of their personalities. We will also provide equipment some children may need to embark on their chosen careers. ww.dejmedetemsanci.cz
About One World, Many Voices philanthropic project
AmCham’s One World, Many Voices activities aim at improving how our communities cooperate to improve our country’s quality of life. We initially provided language laboratories to elementary and middle schools throughout the country. During the 2002 floods, we worked with local non-profits to provide industrial dryers to villages. Since then, we have provided funding to local schools for student projects that increase community participation. This year, we have chosen two projects that fit two of our long-term priorities- a modern workforce and good government.
All money raised will be contributed to the projects. If companies or individuals would like to make separate donations, please contact Renata Paceltova at firstname.lastname@example.org.
