Building the foundation
for the future
We believe the future lies in the youth of today. As part of the Infinum Foundation, we have established a pilot year long scholarship program for 10 high school students. The scholarship is intended for hardworking and gifted students from Croatia who have shown excellence despite facing monumental obstacles in their life.
Every year, we donate 1% of our profits to support initiatives and causes we believe in. Infinum Foundation is not just our way of giving back to the community, but an investment in the future.
How it works
The Foundation Committee, consisting of Infinum’s employees, decides how to allocate resources through sponsorships, education, fundraising, and volunteering.
Infinum Foundation is primarily focused on projects involving children and young people. We believe that future generations can make a huge impact given the right knowledge and tools.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Improving quality of life and education
Encouraging creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship
Advocating responsible behavior toward the environment and the community
Supporting the STEM revolution
We supported the Indiegogo campaign aiming to supply Croatian libraries with micro:bits, pocket-sized computers that help users learn the basics of programming. Making the device available in libraries enables both children and adults to become creators using new technologies.
Helping kids cope with staying in the hospital
A nonprofit has been running a project called “I’ll tell you a story” since 2015. Volunteers would visit children in hospitals and read them stories. COVID put a stop to visits, but these volunteers figured out a way to continue supporting kids in hospitals – with a booklet containing stories, engaging activities, and workshops that can be used by hospital staff.
Nothing can stop child’s play
The rehabilitation center Silver trains assistance dogs for the rehabilitation of disabled persons and children with developmental difficulties. The COVID measures in place would reduce the number of children going to therapy at the same, so they needed to clear and equip additional rooms. We were happy to help!
Christmas STEM workshops, ho ho ho
For most children in foster care, the holiday season is nothing to look forward to. The fun and energetic folks from the Institute for STEM education wanted to change this, so they organized STEM workshops for the kids. They just needed some help in getting all the tools they needed.
Growing by reading
The nonprofit Ozana works on improving the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families. When working with children, they practice Waldorf education and adjust their approach to the specific needs of each individual. This time, they turned to us because they wanted to build a multimedial library for their day-to-day work with children aged 3 to 7.
STEM workshops for youths
This non-profit organizes STEM workshops for children of all ages. They’ve been doing it for years, visiting different cities in Croatia. During workshops, the kids use Raspberry PIs, Arduino boards, soldering irons, and similar tools. The organization needed some help with financing additional materials and equipment. They had us at Raspberry.
Five pairs of paws for five kids
The Croatian association for training guide dogs needed resources for training five therapy dogs for five children with developmental difficulties. After 15 months of socialisation, four months of training, and two months of education for the kids’ parents, each child gets a life companion.
We are so glad when companies recognize the importance of our red-nosed mission to bring smiles to the faces of those who need them the most. Infinum’s support gave us better visibility in the digital world. Donors can support us through our web page and see how their donations are making a difference.
