Good Neighbour and Trustworthy Investor

In order to prevent social exclusion of disabled people and people in a difficult life situation, the Foundation supported the implementation of 41 social welfare projects in 2012 with a total donation value exceeding PLN 1.1m. Support is also available to individual beneficiaries – the total value of individual donations in 2012 approximated PLN 4m. Two prominent projects in this category which are worth mentioning include a donation of PLN 200,000 for the rebuilding of the home of the Nowak family damaged during an aircraft disaster in Cracow and another PLN 200,000 donated to finance the expansion of a cutting-edge rehabilitation centre at the John Paul II Paediatric Welfare and Treatment Facility in Jaszkotla.


The Polish Copper Foundation supports initiatives aimed at counteracting social exclusion of the disabled. The donations are spent on financing rehabilitation programmes, therapeutic workshops, promotion of physical activity and integration of the disabled but also on conversion projects to remove architectural barriers which isolate disabled people.


The Foundation recognises growing social disparities and provides aid to the most disadvantaged social groups, by subsidising the purchase of heating fuel, clothes and food for children’s homes, shelters for the homeless, therapy centres for people with addictions and canteens serving free meals to children. At the beginning of the school year, the Foundation also buys school starter kits for children from low-income families.
