Supporting Czech Communities



Is a 501 (c) 3 organization in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which supports Via Foundation, an independent Czech foundation that is committed to community and philanthropy development in the Czech Republic. Friends of Via gives American donors an easy tax-deductible way to donate to Via Foundation and other Czech non-profit organizations.

Friends of Via supports Via Foundation in “Building the Future, One Community at a Time.”

For the past 18 years, Via Foundation has been supporting people and organizations which are changing Czech communities: people like retiree Zdenka Wasserbauerova, who encourages young people to become bone marrow donors, or a group in Cheb trying to save a local monastery. Last year, Via Foundation supported over 250 projects and awarded over $600,000 in grants.
