Together with trust

Avast has had its home in the Czech Republic for almost 30 years and it continues to have its headquarters in Prague and Brno. We cannot forget our home and we know we owe our country for so much.

What are we about?

We want to help through various organizations where help is most needed. In the long term we have been supporting the operating costs of several nonprofits in whom we have full confidence, where we closely monitor the results of their work.



Where are we on our journey?


The Foundation was established primarily to provide a system for the many years of philanthropic work done by the Avast founders' families. The Foundation Supervisory Board is represented by the founders’ wives Jarmila Baudišová and Milada Kučerová. Together with the third member of the board Libuše Tomolová, they both assist organizations, projects and ideas, which engage them and are dear to their heart.

Project Examples


Wheelchair Rugby Association

Wheelchair Rugby (aka Murderball or Quadrugby) is a tough game for two teams of four players each, with all players in wheelchairs. Each team aims to get a player to score by touching or going over the goal line with the ball in firm control. The ball may be thrown, volleyed, dribbled, or carried in any direction, in a way which meets the rules. The first club was formed in the Czech Republic in January 1993 and there are now five teams in the Czech Republic.

DUHA Association

DUHA Association activities include endeavoring to positively influence the social environment and public opinion, striving to protect the rights of people with mental disabilities, providing consultancy, and educating specialists in this field. It enables its clients to live in regular apartments and take care of their own household. Another mainstay is providing the opportunity to experience an active day, to learn everyday skills, find work and enjoy free time to suit personal interests.


Rudolfinum Gallery

The Rudolfinum Gallery is where contemporary art meets the historic neo-renaissance architecture of the Rudolfinum building located right in the historic center of Prague. Linking modern graphic art with classical music and other artistic expressions provides an opportunity for exceptional cultural experiences. Focusing exclusively on exhibitions (the gallery does not own any collections) and international cooperation the Rudolfinum Gallery has turned itself into an open communication space.


Forum 2000 Conference

The Forum 2000 Foundation realizes Václav Havel’s legacy by supporting the values of democracy and respect for human rights, assisting the development of civil society, and encouraging religious, cultural and ethnic tolerance. It provides a platform where prominent global personalities, thought leaders and courageous individuals from all walks of life can share and debate these critical issues. Since 1997 it has attracted a number of eminent individuals, Nobel laureates, former and active politicians and many others.
