Charitable auction

The Via Foundation Charitable Auction is an exceptional benefit event that marries the beauty of art and design with the beauty of philanthropy. This year we are piloting an online charitable auction for our English-speaking community.

We’ll hope you’ll join us for this first-time event on Saturday, November 21 at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time/11 p.m. Central European Time. You can read more here


What will be auctioned?

  • Work by leading Czech artists and designers, e.g. a work by world renowned glass sculptor Martin Janecky, a vase of Czech crystal by Rückl and Rony Plesl, a unique photo of Václav Havel and an art photo by Ivan Pinkava

  • Designer protective face masks

  • Extraordinary experiences connected to the Czech Republic

Why now?

For 23 years, Via Foundation has worked to build more trust between people at community, city, and regional levels. We need your help in continuing that work. We support communities and leaders who will inspire hope that positive change is possible when we work together, especially during difficult times.


How will your gift be used?

All proceeds will help fund our community-building programs:

  • Living Communities – small grants and training for communityminded citizens, which, in our experience, are a pillar of democracy

  • Don’t Be Afraid of Local Politics – mentoring citizens helping their communities through public office

  • Young Philanthropists – guidance for children and teenagers givingback to their communities

We hope you’ll share an hour of your time for this special event! Read more in this invitation, and consider yourself invited!
