SOCIA – Social Reform Foundation

SINCE 2002, WE HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING AND SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS, PEOPLE AND SOCIAL REFORMS.

All programs and projects of SOCIA – Social Reform Foundation are based on clearly defined values as expressed in the following statement:

  • We believe that each human being is unique. Everyone has their value regardless of their mental, physical, material or other disadvantage.
  • We believe that it is our obligation to create an environment in which good social services will originate as a response to the needs of people who are dependent on the help of others.
  • We believe that the role of social services is to reflect on the needs of their clients. The services are to stimulate independence, responsibility and dignified life of the clients.
  • We believe that the optimal environment for life is family and community; therefore the clients should receive social services in such an environment.
  • We believe that the quality of life of socially disadvantaged groups can only improve when all of those involved cooperate as partners, e.g. clients, families, local office, church, state bodies, local companies, local entrepreneurs, social workers etc., and when both formal and non-formal solidarity exists among the groups.

We improve the quality of life of socially, physically and mentally disadvantaged groups of people

  • We actively create modern field and outpatient services and we support the development of the services that already exist.
  • We mediate financial support for the development of services and capacities of NGOs.

We support social system reforms

  • We collaborate with non-governmental organizations and public administration to create policies and draft laws.
  • We model and create the system of social services.
  • We connect and network experts and organizations.
  • We bring in new topics and innovations.

We strengthen social solidarity of inhabitants of Slovakia

  • We create partnerships with entrepreneurs who have possibility to direct their support for organizations and individuals specifically and effectively through our foundation.
  • We improve awareness of lay and professional public about possibilities of life of disadvantaged and endangered social groups in community, community services, philanthropy and volunteerism.

HOW TO SUPPORT US

By the means of financial support and by its own activities SOCIA Foundation influences changes of the social system for the benefit of the most endangered social groups of inhabitants. We provide our services with maximum effectiveness, without unnecessary bureaucracy in the process of helping others.

HANKS TO THE OBTAINED MEANS WE SUPPORT

  • Social services in the community.
  • Development of field services for seniors so that they can be as long as possible in the natural environment.
  • Early intervention development – we support families in individual home care for disadvantaged children, so that they do not have to be placed in large facilities.
  • Integrating people who have been placed in isolated and often closed facilities back to ordinary life and to normal accommodation or work

CHARITY ADVERTISING

  • Charity advertising means advertising for charitable purposes obtained by a foundation, a non-profit organization, a non-investment fund and a civil association from entrepreneurs. Revenue from this charity advertising will be exempt from tax up to the amount of € 20,000, and entrepreneurs who provide these funds will put that cost into their expenses. The law also lays down an obligation for charity advertising recipients to use exempt revenues only for generally beneficial purposes, such as support and development of sport, support for education, protection of human rights, provision of social assistance, etc. On the part of the entrepreneur who has had expenses on charity advertising, these expenses are tax expenses and may reduce their tax base only after they have been paid.
  • Charity advertising revenue should be used for a particular purpose before the end of the year following the year in which it was provided (similar to using 2 %).
  • The amount of € 20,000  is the highest possible amount that organizations can accept and that the entrepreneur includes in their expenses.

ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BECOME A DONOR WE WILL BE HONORED TO MEET.
