Regional development and social responsibility
Škoda recognises its social responsibilities and actively works to foster sustainable growth in the regions of Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny, and Vrchlabí. To this end, the Škoda Auto Endowment fund was established in 2018, built on three pillars: philanthropic endeavours for long-lasting impact, strategic projects aimed at revitalising public spaces, and grant programmes designed to support civil society. Over the past few years, the fund has backed hundreds of projects in areas such as civic involvement, artistic advancement, educational reform, and social services. Additionally, in collaboration with partners, the fund has been instrumental in initiatives to protect historical sites and rejuvenate public areas. Through these efforts, the Škoda Auto Endowment Fund actively contributes to the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals.
