Everyone should be able to choose how to live


Because everyone should be free to make decisions about their life

Our mission and programs

“As part of our work our greatest focus is on supporting quality of human life, self-sufficiency and the right of the individual to freely make decision about their life.”

“We believe the start and end
of human life are key.
No matter what
your circumstances.”

Together until the end

Program striving for
systemic change around death.

We focus on the end-of-life stage which we believe is very important and yet still taboo in society. For the past three years we have focused on care for the dying and society’s attitude to dying.


Start together

Program for families
with children with a disability

We work to ensure that the family of a child born with a disability has timely access to all necessary information and services so that they can enjoy regular family life as soon as possible.


Together with employees

Avast employees are
interested in the world around them

We have the opportunity to form significant partnerships thanks to more than 1000 Avast Software employees from around the globe, a large number of whom are engaged in beneficial projects.

How does it work?

Together with trust

Long-term partnerships and
seeking new ideas and projects

Each time Avast Software did well the company shared its profits with non-profit organizations whose mission was close to the heart of its founders. This program builds directly on this tradition.


More about us

Who we are

Avast Foundation was set up in 2010 as the charity foundation of Avast, one of the largest security companies in the world using next-gen technologies. Each year Avast dedicates a significant portion of its profits to the foundation. Our programs primarily focus on systemically supporting care at end-of-life and on supporting families with children with a disability. The beginning and end of life are two stages of life which we believe to be very important. We work together with selected specialists, we pay attention to actual needs and we trust those who have been professionally working in these specific areas for many years. We are also interested in areas such as scientific development, cultural heritage and art, support for sport for the disadvantaged and education. More than 1,700 Avast employees are involved through their extraordinary work and both directly and indirectly support communities around the world.

What we are about

Avast protects over 400 million people from threats with one of the most advanced threat detection networks in the world. We value every one of our users and we have not forgotten the communities we came from. This is why Avast Software donates a percentage share of its operating profit to the Foundation. These resources are then used for charitable projects in the Czech Republic, which has been our home for almost 30 years, and in other places and continents where Avast has offices.
