We support

Tatra banka is supporting the areas where many talented,
gifted, and intellectual people are concentrated.
We have based our concept of social performance
on two main pillars - education and art.

The Tatra banka Foundation

The Tatra banka Foundation

The main ambition of Tatra banka Foundation is to increase the level of education and to provide a space for the best so that they can get even farther. Its programmes and grants bring new inspiring encounters with world experts, support the best students, artists in their work and create attractive opportunities for non-governmental organisations and colleges.

GRANT PROGRAMMES

Tatra banka Foundation carries out eight open grant programmes in the field of education and art and three grant programmes dedicated to Tatra banka Group employees.
We support students of colleges, active teachers and researchers in their ambition to improve the education process by providing new information and knowledge from abroad or practical experience and by engaging students in research. We also support non-governmental organisations which actively enter the education process with their practical experience at any college in Slovakia.

PERSONALITIES IN PERSON

Until this day we have welcomed in Slovakia six Nobel Prize winners and two Pulitzer Prize winners, dozens of foreign professors and over 80 top Slovak and Czech economists in terms of the open programme of Tatra banka Foundation who gave lectures to students of Slovak colleges and to the public.

TATRA BANKA FOUNDATION PRIZE FOR ART

For as many as 18 years Tatra banka Foundation has been awarding personalities who contributed with their work in the past year to development of the Slovak art, whether in cinematography, literature, music, theatre or fine arts. Since 2008 we have been awarding a special prize "Young Creative Artist" in every specified category that has been awarded to a young person active in some of the artistic branches. We have already awarded this prize to as many as 63 renowned personalities and 25 young creative artists since. The aim of Tatra banka Foundation is to appreciate in this manner personalities of the Slovak culture and to provide them with a space for creation of new top quality works of art.

Support of art

Support of art

Tatra banka Foundation supports the work of young artists, students of colleges of fine art and performance art in Slovakia, as well as the work of creative teams that promise high quality, artistic value and have a deeper social dimension. It has been supporting regional theatres in the long run and awarding the most significant works for already 18 years with the Tatra banka Foundation Prize for Art.

GRANT PROGRAMMES TO SUPPORT ARTISTIC WORK:

The grant programme entitled "More Art" is a grant programme to support artistic work in the fields that have been awarded also with the Tatra banka Foundation Prize for Art. It concentrates on support of students of art subjects and artists who cooperate with students on creative projects. We want to provide students with a possibility to work under the leadership of renowned artists and pedagogues on real works of art.
The grant programme entitled "More Design" was established in 2013 with the ambition to add this topic to our comprehensive support of art. It focuses on support of visionary, creative projects and projects in the field of experimental design. With this programme we attempt to contribute to promoting young Slovak designers by means of their creative activities and to help them start their career.

We support regional theatres.
