Poland A new foundation on the map of Polish philanthropy

ESG
Polish businessman, investor and philanthropist, Robert Dobrzycki, has set up a new charity. The mission of the Robert Dobrzycki Foundation is to help shape the development of society and promote Poland and Polish business on the world stage.

The foundation has a broad range of operations being involved in education culture and art, while investing in science, healthcare and sport as well as environmental protection and the promotion of Poland.

I have been involved with charities for many years. I help because I enjoy it. It gives me immense satisfaction. For me, by founding a charity I have created an umbrella for many of my charitable activities and opened up a new exciting beginning for many projects in this field. I am helping because I know that this is a better future for us all. By joining the forces of business and the third sector together, we can change the world for the better by thinking through our actions, developing innovative projects, supporting talent and reaching out to those most in need.
Robert Dobrzycki

As the CEO and co-owner of Panattoni Europe, UK, Middle East and India, he is responsible for the company’s operations in 17 countries. As well as growing the business, he is equally concerned with his responsibilities to society. For many years he has personally supported numerous charitable projects and has been investing in talent. He promotes sport, business education and philanthropy and he is an active ambassador of Polish business on the international stage.

The newly created foundation is to support projects that already exist as well as set up its own. Currently work is underway on the programme, which is to financially support outstanding individuals working in the fields of healthcare, energy, economics, law, social programmes, art, ESG and sport. The foundation’s logo is a hummingbird as it is a symbol of going beyond limitations and reaching out for the impossible. It represents new possibilities, future achievements, and advanced technology. Moreover, it has a message for us all, which is that life is joy.
