Hyundai Endowment Fund

Civil society helps to ensure a healthy and functioning modern state. Support for civil society is a long-term area of the Open Society Fund Prague’s work, and touches upon all of the foundation’s programs. This includes the development of non-profit organizations and informal citizens’ initiatives and their participation in the life of society.

In addition, OSF currently administers the Hyundai Endowment Fund, which provides support to community projects, in particular projects in the counties of Frýdek-Místek and Nový Jičín focused on environmental protection, government transparency, and public access to decision-making. The Hyundai Endowment Fund was established in 2007 on the basis of an agreement concluded between Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech, the Moravia-Silesia Region, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, CzechInvest, and several civic associations: Environmental Law Service, Půda pro život (Soil for Life), Děti Země (Children of the Earth), and Beskydčan. The fund contains a total of CZK 20,000,000. OSF administers calls for grant applications and communicates with funding recipients.
