Prague, Czech Republic, 9-1-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Komerční banka’s Jistota Foundation delivered CZK 175,000 to Český ragbyový svaz vozíčkářů (Czech Association of Wheelchair-bound Rugby Players, ČRSV). The funds will be used for financing and promoting the Association’s activities.
David Lukeš, ČRSV President, accepted the gift from Sylva Floríková, Chairwoman, Board of Trustees, KB Jistota Foundation, and Kateřina Šušáková, member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
“Supporting disabled athletes is one of the key activities pursued by KB’s Jistota Foundation. In addition, our co-operation with ČRSV relates to the activities of Komerční banka, which has been sponsoring rugby as a non-professional sport for a long time,” added Sylva Floríková.
ČRSV was set up in 2000 as a civic association. ČRSV fosters rugby for wheelchair-bound players and also organises the Czech League and is responsible for and helps to organise the country’s representation.
Komerční banka’s Jistota Foundation is one of the top ten corporate foundations in the Czech Republic. Over the past 10 years it has distributed more than CZK 50 million to the needy. The Foundation has published a detailed list of the gifts granted and a list of donors in its annual report and on its website.
