“It is surprising that philanthropy has lived to see its day only now,” Lucia Faltinová, executive director of the Slovak Donors’ Forum wrote.

“That is because during times of persisting economic and social crisis its importance is exceptionally relevant. We are pleased that we have won a number of partners – organisations as well as individuals not only in Slovakia but especially in the Czech Republic.”
