VIA mission

Via mission

The Via Foundation supports and strengthens public participation in the development of a democratic society in the Czech Republic.

This includes:

  • Supporting the growth of nonprofit organizations. As the idea of private action for public good is re-born in the Czech Republic, we work with nonprofit organizations to develop their means to operate efficiently, to effectively address the needs and opportunities of their communities, and to become self-sufficient.
  • Developing the culture of philanthropy. The government cannot support all immediate needs of any community. We work to demonstrate that individuals throughout the Czech Republic can take the lead in positively changing their communities.
  • Supporting the cooperation between non-profit organizations, local authorities, and local businesses. Collaboration within communities – working, planning, and implementing changes together – is the best tool to assume joint responsibility for the public good.
