COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF ELBE EUROREGION
DIALOG Program
We believe that quality of life in our community depends on quality of
relationships, on our ability to communicate, to identify and to share values,
to respect our differences and to accept our share of responsibility. Whenever
people are capable of coming together to address a specific issue, to invest their
energy, to be committed, much more comes out than the tangible outcome.
Partnership and trust based community is created, a space where people can
meet and be creative.
Ústí nad Labem Investment Center
As of June 2004, our foundation has become an official
member of the Ústí nad Labem Investment Center – an
association without a legal status - joining the Ústí nad
Labem Municipality, Elbe Euroregion Regional Development
Agency, Regional Chamber of Commerce in Ústí nad Labem
and the Ústí nad Labem Labor Office.
The principle objective of the Investment Center is to set
up attractive opportunities for investors in the Ústí region,
to increase investors’ awareness as to local investment
opportunities, to promote Ústí nad Labem region as an area
ready for investors’ influx as well as for active communication
with potential investors. Our foundation in the Investment
Center focuses primarily on providing current investors with
corporate social responsibility services.
Elbe Euroregion Regional Development Agency
In 1998, our foundation initiated and co-founded the Elbe
Euroregion Regional Development Agency, o.p.s.
This agency strives to support the overall development of
Ústí nad Labem region, in particular by providing information
regarding funding and projects designed for this region, by
administering and coordinating national and international
development programs concerning the region and by
implementing regional development projects. Our foundation
is currently represented in the supervisory board of the
Agency.
Donors Forum Czech Republic
Donors Forum was set up in 1995 as a non-profit initiative
of donors operating in the Czech Republic. Currently,
Donors Forum unites Czech foundation, endowment
funds and corporate donors in three associations. The
mission of the Donors Forum is to support philanthropic
activities, to improve attitudes towards philanthropy in the
Czech Republic and to advocate interests of donors. Our
foundation is one of the 32 associated foundations under
the auspices of the Donors Forum Czech Republic.
TCFN–Transatlantic Community Foundation Network
During 2004 the second three-year phase of the TCFN
program took place. This program focuses on experience
sharing and capacity building of community foundations on
both Atlantic shores. This program is organized by German
Bertelsmann Stiftung in cooperation with The Charles
Stewart Mott Foundation of the US. Our foundation is one of
the 34 organizations participating in the program, engaging
primarily in the “Community Leadership – Other than Grantmaking Roles of a Community Foundation” working group.

ANNUAL REPORT 2004
Civic Sector Assistance
We realize that supporting local civic sector through grant-making only cannot
suffice from the point of view of a community foundation. We are convinced that
civic sector long-term sustainability is linked to regular training opportunities,
to project design capacity as well as to the capacity to raise funds in order
to implement them and, last but not least, to sharing experiences, plans and
objectives.
Information Support:
In the course of the year we designed and distributed an
up-to-date summary of funding opportunities and
information sources to local civil society organizations. This
material contained a list of funding sources designed to
support the NGO sector, including information regarding
programs, deadlines and application details as presented
by the individual funders. Information regarding grantmaking program deadlines was distributed upon request
also outside this target group.
We continued in setting up and updating a contact
information database concerning entities that are publicly
active within the Elbe Euroregion and that we have come in
contact with. Currently, this database contains over 1,450
entries and is used by NGOs particularly for purposes of
addressing specific target groups.
In cooperation with the Civil Society Development
Foundation, we designed an information workshop for
NGOs from Ústí nad Labem and Karlovy Vary regions
regarding their opportunities to participate in the 6th annual
“Help the Children” program.
Technical Assistance and Training:
Within the seventh and eighth call for proposal we assisted
starting NGOs through consulting to design their project
proposals to thereafter apply for a grant made by our
foundation. We provided individual advice and assistance
to dozens of NGOs in selecting suitable partners or funding
sources to implement their projects.
In cooperation with the Center for Community Work service
organization we designed the Small Community Grass-roots
Development Program. Co-funded by the US government,
this program provides training and assistance designed to
support NGO development in rural and peripheral areas
of the Elbe Euroregion with the aim of providing starting
organizations with the fundamental operational capacities.
Civic Sector Promotion:
For the first time this year, we organized an exhibit in Ústí
nad Labem displaying successful projects implemented in
2004 in our region with the aid of promoting NGO activities
and raising public awareness.
Community Needs and Assets Assessment:
In the course of the year, we organized a series of meetings
focused on identifying specific issues and needs of NGOs in
individual districts of the Elbe Euroregion. Local NGO sector
SWOT analyses for districts Děčín, Litoměřice and Teplice
come forth from these meetings, providing an important
feedback both for the foundation management as well as
for the local NGO development.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF ELBE EUROREGION
Public Involvement
In order to make our region a better place to live and improve its environment it
is crucial to actively involve the public in community affairs. Developing lasting
relations to the place people live and work is particularly important with respect
to our history and geographic location. We have chosen to appeal primarily to
young people through the Youth Advisory Committee Project.
Youth Advisory Committee (YAC):
The Youth Advisory Committee is an open group of young
people 15 to 25 years of age whom our foundation provided with a space to take forward various community development activities.
The YAC has set forth the following goals:
• Allowing young people to implement their own projects
that respond to needs identified by the YAC;
• To enable young people to develop an active and responsible relationship to the place they live;
• To inform young people of the civic sector, in particular
with activities carried our by a foundation, offering them
an access to an interesting activity area that could become the focal point of their future professional or other
interest.
In the course of 2004, the YAC had seven members, Ústí
nad Labem University students mastering in social work and
social policy studies, who worked to achieve the YAC goals
engaging in activities described bellow.
Sample Activities:
In the course of 2004, the YAC organized two calls for proposal TEENTOWN whereby young people 15 to 25 years of
age were enabled to apply for support of their projects to
be implemented in the Ústí nad Labem district. (For further
information regarding the outcomes of the TEENTOWN
calls for proposal see page 13).
In this respect, it is important to stress that a vast majority of
funds redistributed was raised by YAC members from local
corporations and individuals.
In February, the YAC Coordinator participated in a week of
training in Belfast UK focused on working with young people involved with the YAC project. This event was organized
by the European Foundation Centre (EFC) in cooperation
with the Community foundation of North Ireland.
Toward the end of May 2004 the YAC asked high school students to write a dwarf story. All twelve literary pieces were
read at the Ústí nad Labem City Museum ceremony closing
the Year of the Dwarf.
During the same period of the year, a survey “Wherein Ústí
2004” took place, involving 65 elementary and high school
students. The objective of the survey was to identify locations that young people from Ústí nad Labem liked the best
and the least. Outcomes of the survey were used as basis
for implementing further activities.
In the course of the year, YAC members participated in organizing the Children’s Day in the Ústí nad Labem ZOO or
the beneficial concert in the CIRCUS Club.
Towards the end of the year, they updated their website
www.teentown.cz.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF ELBE EUROREGION
Why Use Services of the Community Foundation
in your Philanthropy?
Whether you are a local corporation, an individual or another legal entity, our
community foundation can assist you in achieving your philanthropic goals
concerning our community.
Professional and individual approach:
Our foundation offers full service from consulting donors in
formulating their philanthropic intents, through dealing with
all administrative requirements, providing PR and publicity
to the act of giving as well as to the activities supported,
to monitoring project implementation and informing the
donor regularly and supervising appropriate accounting
and evaluation of supported projects.
Local knowledge:
Our foundation is familiar with the local NGO sector,
identifying over two hundred public benefit project each
year, ready to provide information regarding priorities and
needs of the individual areas of public life and advice as
where to allocate the designated funding.
Transparency:
Our foundation is a transparent philanthropy tool, organizing
open calls for proposal, regularly publishing its annual
report, employing double-entry accounting, undergoing
an independent annual audit and other inspections. Our
foundation took part in designing and executed the Ethical
Code of Foundations in the Czech Republic, it is a founding
member of the Donors Forum – the Association of Czech
Foundations and an active member of the Transatlantic
Community Foundation Nettwork.
Synergic effect and continuity:
Our foundation is capable of ensuring synergic effects
of giving by multiplying the strength of more donors in
supporting selected public benefit projects. An interesting
philanthropic opportunity is to grant a permanent gift or
a segment thereof that will never be spent, the foundation
using annual proceeds only in support of donor designated
purposes. The continuity of gift is thereby maintained,
preserving a lasting memory of donor’s philanthropic
activities, even in the eventuality that the donor ceases to
contribute through our foundation.

ANNUAL REPORT 2004
Community Foundation Fund System
Fund system represents a transparent and easy way of giving custom tailored to
specific requirements of all donors. It can be briefly characterized as follows:
• Each gift to our community foundation is deposited in
one of the funds.
• Each grant by our community foundation is made from
one of the funds.
• Open grant-making fund is the principal fund of our
community foundation.
• Other funds are divided into field of interest funds and
named funds.
• Field of interest funds are open to all donors who may be
attracted by the fund’s purpose.
• Named funds are closed, contributions thereto being
made by a single donor who set them up.
• From the point of view of fund property administration,
most funds have the so called permanent and temporary
segments.
• Permanent segment of any fund may not be spent,
producing regular proceeds, thereby contributing to its
temporary segment.
• Temporary segment of a fund is used in achieving the
fund’s purpose.
• Grant-making from each fund is subjected to grantmaking policy of the fond as well as to the fund’s grantmaking committee rules. Some funds organize open calls
for proposal, other funds make grants without an open
tender.
• Each fund has its own status that stipulates details
regarding administrative and economic rules of the fund,
its grant-making policy and other organizational and legal
requirements.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF ELBE EUROREGION
When We Say a Community Foundation...
We have community centers set up in city problem neighborhoods, we have
community planning of social services, even community schools and libraries.
When we use community as an adjective, for most people this is what first
comes to mind.
Consulting a dictionary, we encounter different definitions of varied semantic
connotations. If we read more carefully, however, we may discover that one
theme is repeated over and over: stress on appertaining amongst people in
a given area that forms a whole from a geographic, cultural or historical point
of view. This is why foundations that respect and honor this thought are called
community foundations.
All community foundations, whether they are in the US, Slovakia or South Africa, share certain common characteristics that
differentiate them from other types of foundations.
Characteristic features of community foundations include in particular the following:
• Community foundations strive to make life better in a
clearly designated geographic location.
• Community foundations are independent, they are not
subdued to influence of other NGOs, donors, local or
national governments.
• Community foundations are represented and managed
by local community leaders.
• Community foundations make grants to NGOs, optionally
to individuals, in support of a wide range of emerging and
changing community needs.
• Community foundations look into the future – they strive
to accumulate and to valorize their endowments raised
from a wide array of donors – individuals, corporations
and other entities, primarily from the location they serve.
• Community foundations raise funds primarily from local
donors, both individual and corporate.
• Community foundations help their donors in achieving
their philanthropic goals and visions, primarily by
providing services custom tailored to their interests and
capacity.
• Community foundations are impartial and open to all
active community members, striving to be a helpful
partner to other entities in addressing local issues.
This integral concept was developed in 1914, when Frederick Goff, an attorney and a banker, founded the first community
foundation in Cleveland, Ohio. It was he who formulated an idea that 82 years later appealed to us, and before that to over
1,100 community foundations around the globe; an idea that has helped to accumulate property exceeding USD 30 billion,
thanks to which community foundations support NGOs worldwide with nearly 2 billion US dollars.
Following the example of the US and other countries where community foundations began to grow, we strive to accumulate
funding from local individual and corporate donors, from all those who live, work or otherwise care for the locality we serve
– the Elbe Euroregion, i.e. Děčín, Litoměřice, Teplice and Ústí nad Labem areas.

ANNUAL REPORT 2004
Word in Conclusion
Dear reader,
By publishing this 2004 Annual Report we wanted to share with you our successes and key activities
of the past year. Please allow me to sum up once more the most important information regarding
the 2004 journey of our foundation towards developing an open society and making the Elbe
Euroregion a better place to live.
In May 2004, we officially changed our name to Community Foundation of the Elbe Euroregion.
We thereby formalized a four year process of assuming our share of responsibility not only for Ústí
nad Labem, but also for Děčín, Litoměřice and Teplice areas.
In the course of last year, we invested much effort and energy in innovating local giving. We set up three new named funds
and one field of interest fund, we focused on promoting and carrying through the idea of permanent fund segments that
– as we believe – represent a great potential for the future of local philanthropy. We thoroughly advanced our offer of donor
services with the aim of meeting all the multiform philanthropic ideas and objectives of our current donors as well as our
prospects.
We hope that NGOs welcomed the news of our organizing two annual open calls for proposal. Thanks to them and thanks
to grants made from field of interest and named funds we supported 76 projects with a total of CZK 1,5 million in 2004.
From the economic independence and sustainability point of view, it was undoubtedly important that our foundations
received another contribution from the Foundation Investment Fund, thereby scaling our endowment up to the current CZK
45 million.
Last but not least, I would like to stress our active involvement in projects and events focused on philanthropy and community
building at local, national and international levels. Among all, let me spell out our involvement in the Donors Forum, in the
Transatlantic Community Foundation Network or in the CEE Trust program regional foundations group.
In conclusion, on behalf of our foundation, I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to everyone who contributed in any
way: local corporate and individual donors and national and international donors for their funding support; local institutions
and partners for extensive cooperation; project implementing partners for their contribution to bringing our community to
life and for making it a better place; and to our foreign partners for sharing invaluable know-how and experience.
