Since our establishment, we have been actively engaged in society, by practically supporting charitable organisations who do important work and by contributing in emergency situations, both through the personal involvement of our employees in various actions and through financial assistance.
For 12 years, we have been consistently supporting the NGO “Iliahtida” in Crete, as a gold sponsor, by helping address the needs of the foundation which provides assistance to children with neoplastic diseases and their families. Over the last 10 years, we have contributed a total amount of €50,000.
At the same time, we support various NGOs helping vulnerable groups, such as children, people with disabilities, patients and refugees. In the last 10 years alone, eleven (11) NGOs have received support in total, including ELEPAP, PIKPA Pentelis, the Smile of the Child, Make a Wish and Lyreio Ecclesiastical Foundation, through donations in money or in kind, and also thanks to employee initiatives, such as collecting funds, clothes, books and toys, and the purchase of heating oil and personal computers.
We also offer support to the public in cases of emergency, e.g. by collecting funds and buying basic commodities for those affected by the flooding in Nea Peramos in 2017, and through the sale of artwork created by our staff at a visual arts exhibition organised for this purpose, whose proceeds were donated to the ‘Margarita’ Vocational Training Centre.
In 2022, we provided support to Ukrainian refugees through the Hellenic Red Cross, by donating the amount of €2,720, as well as food and medication collected by our staff. Recently, in 2023, humanitarian aid items and food were collected to meet the first needs of the earthquake victims of Turkey and were delivered to the Hellenic Red Cross for their distribution. At the same time, the company doubled the amount of money raised by employees and deposited it to the relevant account of the organization.
We also encourage companies-clients of the TSEK online service to support various NGOs. Through the TSEK platform, they can choose an amount to donate to one of four foundations for children that we work with (ELEPAP, Make a Wish, SKEP, Tipping Point) and we reward them with free use of TSEK services of an amount equal to 20% of their donation.
In addition, in order to support technological innovation, we have been annually sponsoring the MIT Enterprise Forum Greek Startup Competition since 2020, with a total amount of €10,000 so far.
