Infinum Foundation Gets a Slovenian Branch

Our initiative for giving back to the community through volunteering work and donations recently got a local extension. Infinum Slovenia established its own Foundation team, and they have big plans for local actions with a global impact. 

Infinum Slovenia started a new chapter of compassion and community engagement. Recently, our colleagues from the land of the Alps established a local initiative that extends the efforts of Infinum Foundation

Driven by a shared goal, six passionate individuals came together to spark positive change in their community. Their mission is simple yet profound – to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need.

Worthy causes, worthy goals

For years, we’ve been donating 1% of our profits to support initiatives and causes we believe in through Infinum Foundation. With a primary focus on projects involving children and young people, the Foundation is not just our way of giving back to the community but an investment into a better future. 

In line with this, the Slovene branch has set its aims to align with the core values of the main Foundation while also addressing specific local needs. 

“The importance of giving back to the community we are part of is paramount to us,” said Anže Pureber, JavaScript engineer and one of the Slovene volunteers. “Infinum has always grown around the concepts of support and mentorship within the company. We believe that through direct actions, either through donations or investing our time and knowledge, we can support people in our community and help those in need.”

Infinum Foundation Slovenia is dedicated to supporting three key areas:

Preserving our precious planet

One of the group’s primary focuses is on preserving the environment and protecting the natural world. The health of the planet directly impacts the well-being of all its inhabitants, and through their initiatives, the Slovene Foundation aims to raise awareness about environmental issues, organize community clean-up drives, and support conservation efforts.

Investing in tomorrow’s leaders

When we invest in the growth and well-being of our youngest, we lay the foundation for a more prosperous and equitable society. By creating opportunities for education, mentorship, and personal development, the Foundation wants to empower children and adolescents to reach their full potential. 

Supporting essential services and community needs

From firefighters risking their lives to keep us safe to educational institutions shaping young minds, these sectors play a vital role in upholding the fabric of society. The Foundation is committed to supporting essential services and actively collaborating with the educational sector to address their specific needs and challenges. 

There are many ways to make a difference

While extremely important, donations are not the only way we can extend our support to society. The Slovene Foundation won’t hesitate to roll up their sleeves and engage with the community directly to create a more meaningful and lasting impact. This is how they plan to contribute: 

Volunteer work – a hands-on commitment to service

With a deep commitment to active citizenship and community engagement, Infinum Foundation Slovenia believes in the power of volunteering to effect real change and foster connections. The members will actively participate in volunteer activities, such as planting trees, assisting at shelters, and organizing community events.

Donations – giving back to support various causes

Even the smallest act of kindness can make a profound impact. The Slovene branch of Infinum Foundation is committed to making donations to support various causes that align with their value and mission, such as providing school supplies to underprivileged children, contributing to animal shelters, or supporting initiatives that promote social justice and equality. 

Material assistance – providing essentials to those in need

In times of hardship, material assistance can significantly impact individuals and families facing adversity. The Foundation is committed to collecting essentials like clothing, food, and household items to distribute to those in need. Through these efforts, they aim to alleviate some of the burdens faced by their fellow community members and demonstrate that we’re all in this together.

If you want to change the world, start in your own backyard

Our Slovene Foundation team took the saying above very seriously, so their first organized action was – cleaning up the surroundings of their office space. Armed with gloves and trash bags, the team eagerly pitched in to spruce up the area, setting the tone for the meaningful work ahead. 

Meaningful work indeed ensued as the Slovene Foundation made its first donation last month. The recipients were three talented primary school students representing Slovenia at the VEX Worlds robotics championship in the USA. The contribution aimed to alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with travel and participation, allowing these students to focus on pushing the boundaries of creativity and ingenuity in robotics.

The look ahead

This is just the beginning for the enthusiastic team at Infinum Foundation Slovenia. With their passion and dedication, they are poised to make a significant local impact that resonates on a global scale. 

The future looks bright, and we can’t wait to see the positive changes they will bring to their community and beyond.
