The letter of Ivana Mišković Karić
In Delta Holding we believe that the size of a corporation is not measured by the amount of skills, knowledge and efforts invested in profit-making but also by willingness and readiness to understand and participate in creating better living conditions for all our fellow citizens.
We established Delta Foundation in 2007 with the aim of initiating the endowment spirit in Serbia after several decades. We achieved that in 2012 by building the first Delta Holding endowment in Bežanijska kosa, which is still the only day care centre in the territory of New Belgrade municipality. “Sunce” day care centre for children and youth with disabilities, with the area of 2.500 m², was fully intended for the needs of persons with disabilities and in line with European standards. We are particularly proud of our endowment being mentioned as an example of good practice both in our country and abroad.
During eight years we have monitored carefully the needs of our community, planned detailed projects and adjusted them to our Company’s resources. We have organized 3.334 humanitarian activities and invested 36.29 million EUR in the community betterment. We support children and youth with disabilities, talented pupils and students, children without parental care, people in needy circumstances, local initiatives etc.
We have invested 1.7 million EUR in educational programs. We have schooled, educated, directed professionally and helped 650 grant users. From endowments to education and culture, agriculture and social protection area, our programs and projects have contributed to improved quality of life of every tenth inhabitant of Serbia.
However, we will not stop here but we continue in line with Delta Holding strategy of socially responsible business operations. We are guided by Aristotle’s words that “anyone can give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for every one, nor is it easy".
Welcome to Delta Foundation.
