ATTENTION: We are not a public institution and submitting documents to our Foundation is not equivalent to receiving a grant. Also, applying for a given amount does not guarantee that you will receive exactly that amount. All submitted documents will be reviewed by an application assessment committee appointed by the Board of Directors, with priority given to providing assistance to those most in need.
Financial support granted by the Foundation for the purchase of prostheses and other orthopaedic and rehabilitation equipment is granted maximum once every 3 years (this does not apply to rehabilitation, which can be granted once a year). The Foundation Board may decide to grant additional support before this period expires in exceptional situations (e.g. re-amputation).
Rules of cooperation
1) The first step after being awarded a grant is to sign an agreement in which we will specify the amount, type of support and the beneficiary's obligations.
2) The support is granted on the principle of payment of services to the beneficiary on the basis of a VAT invoice, it is not a donation to the beneficiary.
3) The beneficiary undertakes to cooperate with the Foundation in the field of promotion: permission to use their image in the media, making photos available for the website, participation in events organized by the Foundation: the Run, press conferences, beneficiary's day. These are necessary conditions to obtain support.
