Tatra banka Foundation
Tatra banka has chosen philanthropy as the most dominant area of its corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Therefore, in 2004 it founded its own foundation – Tatra banka Foundation as its philanthropic institution.
The Tatra banka Foundation has long supported university and secondary education, education and development in the field of digital technologies, art and design.
It is here for everyone who wants to grow, learn, create and at the same time have the ambition to achieve something in life - for everyone who wants to develop and be the best in their field.
Through grant programs and collaborations, the foundation brings new inspiring meetings with world-class scientific experts - Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, supports active groups of professors and students at universities and high schools, young talented artists and designers - while creating attractive opportunities for NGOs.

As an innovation-loving bank, Tatra banka cooperates at conferences and events dealing with the topic of start-ups and innovations.
As part of its sponsorship strategy, Tatra banka has decided to support Slovak art, as it realizes that quality and valuable art is an image of an advanced and cultured society, of which it wants to be a dignified part.
Art support has been a key area of ??Tatra banka's sponsorship partnerships for more than two decades. We are long-term partners of important cultural institutions, our foundation provides grants designed to support artistic creation and design. However, the "flagship" in this direction was the appreciation of the talent, enthusiasm and work of Slovak artists, currently known as the Tatra Bank Foundation Award for Art. So far, we have awarded 179 established artists and budding artists with this award.
At present, Tatra banka is the general partner of our two strongest cultural institutions - the Slovak National Theater and the Slovak National Gallery. It is also a long-term partner of events supporting the creation of designers.
We support the latest trends in education through experiential teaching with Phenomena of the World and we contribute to the improvement of financial literacy among young people with the help of the Phenomena of Money project.
