ŠKODA AUTO and Tereza Maxová Foundation Education Fund

ŠKODA AUTO and Tereza Maxová Foundation Education Fund

The aim of the ŠKODA AUTO and Tereza Maxová Foundation Education Fund is to support disadvantaged children growing up in institutions in the Central Bohemian and Hradec Králové Regions in terms of education and personal development.

Support is intended for children from 15 years of age – students at secondary schools and apprentice training centres.

“Industry and society are both developing so quickly right now. As an international company, we invest considerable sums of money in our own industrial development, but also know how important it is to invest in educating children, especially those at a disadvantage. After all, it is in children that we see our future.”

Ing. Bohdan Wojnar, Member of the Board of Directors for Human Resource Management, ŠKODA AUTO a.s.

“Education is one of the values on which a person builds his or her whole life. We at the Foundation try to make sure that children not fortunate enough to grow up within a family environment have sufficient opportunities and chances to study. That is why we are always happy to help them.”

Tereza Maxová, President of the Administrative Board at the Tereza Maxová Foundation
