Good Neighbour and Trustworthy Investor

Cultivating the Polish tradition and raising the national, civic and cultural awareness are among the statutory objectives of the Polish Copper Foundation. In 2012, the Foundation provided support to 44 projects in that category with a total value of more than PLN 3m. The Polish Copper Foundation made a significant contribution to the organisation of the 15th International Folk Festival “Kyczera World”, a regular item in the calendar of cultural events in the Copper Basin.


Of very high significance for the regional identity is the cultivation of the mining and smelting traditions in the Copper Basin . Therefore, the Polish Copper Foundation contributes to the promotion of copper industry and in 2012 spent over PLN 500,000 on that cause. Thanks to the donation of the Foundation, celebrations of the annual Barbórka Holiday and the anniversary of copper ore deposits discovery by Dr. Jan Wyżykowski were held. The events were organised by the social and cultural organisations of the inhabitants of the Copper Basin, including the Jan Wyżykowski Friends Society in Sieroszowice and the Society of Lubin Area Enthusiasts. Another beneficiary is the Złotoryja Society of Mining Traditions which received a high value donation for the construction of a Mining and Smelting Theme Park in Leszczyna near Złotoryja.
