Good Neighbour and Trustworthy Investor

Taking care of the wellbeing and safety of the inhabitants of the Copper Basin and the Lower Silesia, the Polish Copper Foundation engages in numerous projects and local activities concerning the environment and public safety. In 2012, the Foundation supported 22 projects in those fields with a total donation value exceeding PLN 1m. The majority of the donated funds were used to purchase specialist equipment for the local safety and rescue forces, such as the fire service and the police, and to finance outdoor learning for children. The Foundation also sponsors local prevention and training programmes addressed to children and youth. Thanks to the grant of close to PLN 420,000 the Foundation organised a number of outdoor learning events for students of elementary schools from Krotoszyce, Kotla, Żukowice and Jerzmanowa. Under the project of promoting healthy lifestyle, children were offered an opportunity to attend swimming classes.

 

In 2012, the Polish Copper Foundation co-financed purchase of rescue and fire fighting equipment and specialist clothing for the Voluntary Fire Service in Piersna and purchase of specialist clothing for three units of the Voluntary Fire Service in Kotla.

 

The Foundation also participates in humanitarian aid campaigns for the victims of accidents and natural disasters. One of the examples is the purchase of construction materials for families whose houses suffered most severe damage during the fl ooding of Maciejowa district of Jelenia Góra.
