The Fund history
From the beginning, countless projects and individual applications have been supported for the most disadvantaged among us. ING Group has long supported children in need in all countries where it operates. In the Czech Republic, the company chose our Foundation as a partner.
A special grant committee, composed of the Foundation team and also ING Bank representatives, was created to further deepen the collaboration and the hands-on involvement. Together, they decide on targeted and specific help and the distribution of funds. In addition to participating in the grant committee, the Fund has always been supported by ING Bank’s management but also by the employees and partners through countless volunteer activities.
