“Your Opportunity” Śnieżka Foundation
The objectives in the area of social involvement are also performed by the “Your Opportunity” Śnieżka
Foundation, which is a public benefit organization. The pillars supporting the Foundation appointed by the
Parent Company in 2005 are the areas of education, healthcare and social aid. The Foundation supports the
achievement of Śnieżka’s social involvement objectives, being simultaneously an independent entity acting
pursuant to its own articles of association.
In the reporting period, due to the support from the Founder (FFiL Śnieżka SA), which amounted to PLN 350
thousand as well as due to payments coming from natural persons and cash from 1% of tax, the Foundation
was able to actively pursue its goals in the following areas:
The Foundation supports comprehensive development of children and youth through performing its own
educational initiatives and through supporting projects performed by units conducting teaching, cultural,
educational and sports activity.
Among the institutions which received donations in 2019, there were, among others, schools, kindergartens,
sports clubs and cultural units.
For 14 years of the Foundation’s operation, it has provided such support to over several hundred
institutions and organizations.
