37 projects chosen following a tender of OTP banka d.d.
As a part of its donation scheme called “Green light to … better society“, OTP banka invited the tender for donation requests and chose 37 projects among which it will distribute the total of HRK 500,000.
Upholding the ten-year long tradition, OTP banka d.d. invited the tender for donation requests, with eligible applicants from four categories: the young, education and science; protection of cultural, historic and traditional heritage and environmental protection; humanitarian projects and sports. A few hundred requests for donations submitted from all over Croatia made it very difficult for the commission to choose only 37 projects. The chosen projects stood out with their evident contribution to the society in general, and especially to the communities involved.
Over the last ten years, OTP banka d.d. granted the total of HRK 4.2 million solely through its donation schemes, thus helping to implement 438 quality projects, critical for the development of the community and the society as a whole.
